Press release from the Cornish Buildings Group:
Searching for the Best Buildings in Cornwall
The search is on for the best Cornish buildings of 2013.
The annual awards scheme run by the Cornish Buildings Group recognises the best new buildings and conservation or restoration projects.
The Group’s Chairman Paul Holden said ‘This is the most prestigious architectural awards scheme in Cornwall. Over the years we have awarded some of the most iconic buildings in the county. The competition champions the best in new architecture, the most competent restoration projects and outstanding craftsmanship. From cathedrals to bus shelters, modernist houses to iron work gates, no project is too large or too small to enter’.
Joanne Laing, the Awards Co-Ordinator adds ‘Last year was one of our most successful awards to date with some outstanding entries particularly in the area of heritage restoration. The main awards last year went to Simon Conder Associates for two new houses at Porthtowan and Long and Kentish for the restoration of Porthmear Studios at St Ives. We are now looking for entries for projects completed in 2013’.
Past winners and the entry form can be found on the Cornish Buildings Group website https://sites.google.com/site/cornishbuildingsgroup/awards
Awards Awards are made each year for the best of recently completed or renovated buildings. These include private, commercial and public developments, renovations and small building or landscape improvements. The 'Oscars' of building awards in Cornwall, the CBG awards are respected and desirable recognitions of achievement, with entries from private individuals and architectural practices. The awards conclude with a well publicised ceremony and party open to all entrants.
The closing date for entrants to the Award is 31 March in each year, for buildings completed within the previous two years. The Award is then made in the spring of each year. Entries for the 2013 award scheme closes on 31 March 2014.
