We are delighted to announce that design storey won not only a regional award, but also a special award for conservation, in last week’s RIBA South West Regional Awards. The judges were particularly impressed with the quality and the architectural ambition achieved on a limited budget as well as the desire to follow conservation principles on an unlisted building:

“The architects treated the project as if it were a listed building, researching its history and significance before implementing the designs. The budget shows what can be achieved with a committed and talented team”
