The Prince's Regeneration Trust (PRT) is delighted to announce that Middleport Pottery in Stoke-on-Trent has won three RIBA West Midlands Awards for architectural excellence, including the top overall prize for the region.
At an awards ceremony in Birmingham last week, the Pottery was announced as winner of the much-coveted Building of the Year Award, as well as the Conservation Project of the Year Award and a Regional Award.
The awards, run by professional body the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), are given annually to new schemes considered to be of the highest architectural merit in their particular region.
The awards were given to architect firm Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios, which was appointed by PRT to carry out the restoration of Middleport Pottery.
The awards judges described the Pottery as “an exemplar regeneration project which has inspired the local community and the wider region”.
The latest success comes on top of three further awards triumphs for Middleport Pottery in the last two months, including a Europe-wide Europa Nostra Award for heritage. It also won two national awards - a Civic Trust AABC Conservation Award for building conservation excellence and a Placemaking Award for the best use of heritage in place-making.
