Western Bank Library wins again!

Congratulations to Avanti Architects, Admiral Construction, Turner & Townsend and the University of Sheffield for the refurbishment of Western Bank Library, which has just won the RICS Pro Yorkshire Award for the best Building Conversion in the region.


At the Sheffield Design Awards 2010 the project won best Renovation and Avanti Director John Allan, a former student of the University of Sheffield, collected the award from Tom Bloxham MBE.

Pevsner believed that the Library, which was built between 1955-9, ‘deserves the prize for the best individual twentieth century building in Sheffield.’

The slideshow on Avanti’s website illustrates the successful renovation whilst the image below shows how the library looked prior to the work being commissioned.
