Farrell Centre Shortlisted for Lord Mayor's Design Award

The Lord Mayor's Design Awards have been recognising exceptional architectural and environmental designs since 1994. The purpose of these awards is to promote and publicise the best in architecture and design, with a view to enhancing the built environment. The biennial awards highlight new buildings, housing developments, and conservation projects that have made positive contributions to communities.

Councillor Alex Hay, Cabinet member for a Thriving City at Newcastle City Council, said: "Newcastle is renowned for its vibrant culture, iconic architecture and being at the cutting edge of innovation. These awards are a great way to showcase the brilliant schemes and developments that have boosted the local economy, created jobs for residents and made a positive impact in communities. I look forward to seeing all the worthy winners crowned later this year."

Our Farrell Centre project, in collaboration with Elliott Architects, has been shortlisted for this year's Lord Mayor Design Awards. 

SPACE is pleased to have this opportunity to showcase its work in retaining and creatively adapting a listed building, highlighting the unique possibilities of retrofitting, and demonstrating how buildings can evolve and regenerate.

The awards ceremony, organised by the Urban Design Team in the Place Directorate, will take place later this year.
