A look back at the Leeds Architecture Awards 2019

By White Rose Park March 2019

The 27th Leeds Architecture Awards took place a week ago, and as the dust settles on yet another fantastic event, we can begin to reflect on a night that highlighted the most exciting and innovative architectural projects in our region, along with the deserved winners.

The event was hosted by Andrew Edwards of BBC Radio Leeds and included speeches from chartered architect Hiro Aso, and Councillor Judith Blake, leader of Leeds City Council.

We congratulate all of this year’s winners, which included Sunny Bank Mills, Edward Boyle Library and CQ The Court, but in particular, the winner of this year’s new award, ‘The Special Community Award’.

Our developers and operators Munroe K were proud sponsors of the event this year, with CEO David Aspin on hand to present the ‘Special Community Award’ to CATCH Leeds, a charity of passionate volunteers who run a community space and deliver a range of youth activities.
