Meadow View Scoops RIBA 2017 Special Award

Phoenix Brickwork's project, Meadow View Specialist Dementia Care Facility in Darley Dale, has picked up another award! The project has won the RIBA 2017 East Midlands Special Award to compliment the Stone Federation received in 2016.

The judges commented 'A central circulation route links the four floor levels as it climbs up the hillside, and is signalled outside (and sometimes inside) by a distinctive local Derbyshire drystone wall. The same stone is used in sawn form for the neat roof and coping details, creating a unity both within the building and externally with its surroundings, despite its very contemporary scale and form.'
