Newnham Reigns Supreme at the Brick Awards

The Dorothy Garrod Building cleaned up at the Brick Awards on Wednesday.

There were 350 entries from around the UK, and 109 projects shortlisted in 15 categories. The building won both its categories – medium housing and the craftsmanship award – as well as being given the Supreme Award of the night! Hillary Satchwell, head judge of the Brick Awards 2019, said:

'The supreme winner really impressed the judges, who felt it was exceptional in a number of ways. It manages to be exemplary teaching and research space, as well as student housing; it is a strongly urban and welcoming response to the surrounding streets in this part of Cambridge; and at the same time is an amazing work of carefully considered and expressive brick design and craftsmanship. Quite some achievement.'

Thank you to Northcot for hosting a fun and memorable evening!
