Awards for Architectural Students at the University of Huddersfield

Last month we were pleased to recognise the design work of second-year degree students within the School of Art, Design and Architecture at the University of Huddersfield with some design awards.

In September, teaming up with Charnock Bates, we set the students a brief to visit and research a live, rural site in Meltham, to firstly design proposals for a property on the site based upon a specific client’s lifestyle, requirements and build cost budget and secondly to consider future flexibility and the likely impact of climate change on the proposals.

The students presented their final designs in November and we were really pleased to be able to recognise a number of designs for notable efforts in specific areas and an overall winner whose design we felt successfully fulfilled most aspects of the brief.

We were overall very impressed by the standard and quality of all the work and ideas presented by students over the course of the project.

The project as a whole gave the students a realistic insight into real life architectural project scenarios and both Fibre Architects and Charnock Bates were able to both give feedback on the designs and offer advice during the course of the project, during a number of organised review sessions at the University.
