WINNER: @marksandspencer Foodhall, Northallerton by GT3 Architects has won a 2017 RIBA Yorkshire Award from the Royal Institute of British Architects.
The project description by the design team coins a term ‘Healing a Historic Town Centre’, which is most apt and draws its inspiration from the morphology of the existing urban grain of Northallerton. The site for the new food store brings together what was a fragmented site littered with various outbuildings from the previous life of the hospital, now relocated to new purpose-built facilities.
The three-gable ended shed like structures are striking yet monumental in appearance and respond well to the varying roof lines of the existing context, whilst being effective in breaking down the large single volumes of the 10,000sq foot retail space.
