Winner announced for Calverley design competition

Last year, we launched an international design competition seeking innovative architects to develop plans to revive Calverley Old Hall, an exceptional medieval manor house between Leeds and Bradford. The project is highly significant given that the building, inhabited by the Lords of the Manor of Calverley from around 1250 to the 18th century, is ranked in the top 2.5% of all listed buildings in the country.

We are delighted to announce that English firm Cowper Griffith have been chosen as the winner of the design competition. "The winning design stood out for its marriage of real sensitivity to the Grade I listed building with an ingenious approach to creating wonderful, uplifting spaces within and around it" said Anna Keay, director of the Landmark Trust.

Get a closer look at the winning design on our Calverley Old Hall competition page.

Join us at a local event: We welcome local views and are holding a drop-in session on Monday 12 March at Calverley Old Hall between 2pm and 4pm, continuing at the Mechanics Institute between 6pm and 7.30pm, at which Landmark’s team will introduce Cowper Griffith’s designs to local residents. Information will also be available to view in Calverley Library.
