Ilkley Civic Society announce Commendation Award for our Easby Drive Project

One Design Architects Ltd. were delighted to receive a Design award on 24th March 2022 in this year’s ‘Design and Conservation Awards’, run by Ilkley Civic Society. The event, described as the Society’s opportunity to recognise new buildings of high architectural merit, awarded a commendation to One Design’s submission for a new garage/garden room within Ilkley’s Conservation Area. Described as being an unusual design solution that sympathetically blended traditional and contemporary materials, the judging panel praised the building for its subtlety and ability to recede from public view; its function hidden behind a sculptural garden wall and sedum-covered roof that totally compliments the original historic house. The panel said the scheme looked attractive from every angle and appeared more as a landscape feature than a standard building; its position deliberately subdividing the existing garden with a formal stone frontage addressing the driveway whilst to the rear, a glazed door screen opens onto a secluded, secret kitchen garden.

Well done to Jeremy Newsome and all those involved.
