The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has announced Sutherland Hussey Architects and Gross Max Landscape Architects as winners of a competition to design a new community hub for Sessay Village in North Yorkshire. The proposal, which jury chair Robin Snell believed to have “best expressed the client vision,” aims to become a well-used public destination that properly serves more than 20 local organizations, including a primary school, cricket club and the Sessay First Responders.
The narrow, single-story pavilion will stretch between two circular sports fields, connecting it’s inner halls directly to the outdoors. Continue after the break for more images of the project.
“Sutherland Hussey produced a thoughtful and forward thinking design which should provide a truly uplifting pavilion for the Sessay community and the wider region,” commented jury member Wayne Hemingway MBE.
Sutherland Hussey Architects and Gross Max will now develop their design for a planning application in March. They were selected from 86 international applicants and a shortlist of four, which included Daykin Marshall Studio with Edward Hutchison, Faed Browne Architects, and Gibson Thornley Architects.
