The winners of CAMRA's prestigious Pub Design Awards were announced this week with Hall and Woodhouse Wichelstowe taking the award for best new build.
In line with current social distancing measures, winners will be recognised at an event hosted in CAMRA’s new virtual pub, the Red (On)Lion, by judges at 7pm on 7th May.
Andrew Davison, chair of CAMRA’s Pub Design Award judging panel, said: “The New Build award is only awarded rarely, so it is a testament to the quality of the Hall & Woodhouse Wichelstowe that it has won! Mackenzie Wheeler Architects, the designers of the building, have drawn inspiration from the location, with a range of gabled roofs at the water’s edge evoking the canal side sheds which housed many a traditional boat-building and repairing business, and a taller accommodation block referencing historic canal side warehouses.
“The commitment Hall & Woodhouse make to individual, location-specific design is praiseworthy.”
