The Portland Collection has been announced as the recipient of an RIBA National Award 2016. All award-winning projects will now be considered for this year's Stirling Prize.
The project has been praised for the way it nestles delicately within a cluster of existing buildings as well as the integration of existing stone walls with a simple palette of materials that blends into its historic context.
Judges commented: "...the building creates a subtle design that sits perfectly in the grounds of the Grade 1 listed Welbeck Abbey, integrating new and historic elements with a careful selection of materials and crisp detailing to create a highly sophisticated design".
Earlier this year the project was also crowned 'RIBA East Midlands Project of the Year'.
