Hopkins Architects, the architectural company behind the new visitor facilities project at Holkham, has won a prestigious RIBA East Award as well as the RIBA East Conservation Award. The awards were presented in recognition of the £4.5 million redevelopment project at Holkham to provide new visitor facilities. The major transformation of the former pottery factory and stables buildings has created exciting, new and improved facilities for visitors and a new events venue, The Lady Elizabeth Wing.
The awards were presented in a ceremony at Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge on Thursday 18th May and recognise the best in new architectural projects throughout the region. Speaking of the project RIBA East commented “Overall the detail is of a high standard and the conversion is a clever and bold reuse of the existing buildings, giving Holkham Hall another venue of which it can be truly proud.”
