At Robinson College last night NRAP Architects picked up two Awards: An RIBA Regional Award and an Historic England Conservation Award, for their Language School in Cambridge. This follows close on the heels of their success at the Cambridge Design Award last month.
The RIBA Journal is quoted as saying, ”The judges felt this to be a carefully considered scheme that respected the existing structure while inserting a completely modern piece of architecture, well suited to its pedagogical purpose. The level of invention, innovation and originality was marked and especially evident in the internal and external detailing of old materials with new ones.”
