Duration Win Prestigious Norfolk Design Awards | Eastern Daily Press

Rebecca MacNaughton – November 2021

Duration has scoop gold for conservation at the prestigious 2021 Norfolk Design and Craftsmanship Awards!

Founder Miranda Hudson says:

We are over the moon to have received an award in conservation for what was a very complex and involved build project.Working with Ruth Brennan Architecture and Draper & Nichols Builder on our grade II* listed site was 18months of planning and a full year of on site delivery.

We knew building a destination farmhouse brewery meant being on a working farm, when we decided to renovate a dilapidated 16th-century barn repurposed from a 10th-century priory ruin we knew we had our work cut out. With protected wildlife and the historic and cultural significance of our site, winning an award like this really does make all the months of hard work worth it!’

Norfolk has some of the most locally loved and contemporary architecture and community projects in the country and the Design and Craftsmanship Awards are an exciting opportunity to celebrate this.

A collaboration between The Norfolk Association of Architects, The Norwich Society and Civic Voice, these biennial awards celebrate outstanding building and places in the county across four categories – houses and housing, non-residential, conservation and community.

They recognise all those involved in their creation, from designers to the specialist craftspeople and the community, where collaboration delivers high standards of finish, innovation in design and community benefit.

The ambition of the awards is to leave a long lasting and positive impact on the region through recognition of best practice and exemplary schemes that shape future development for the benefit of all.
