We are delighted that Victoria Gate has been shortlisted for three categories, Urban Regeneration,Commercial Building and Innovative Use of Brick and Clay Products at the Brick Awards 2017.
The exterior of new arcade building evolves from the 19th and 20th century language of the surrounding Blomfield and Victorian brick and terracotta buildings in Leeds, and consists of sculpturally pleated brick elevations, changing in rhythm and scale to respond to the context. The bricks have been specially selected with Ketley to ensure that they will weather well when exposed to Yorkshire rain, and have been pointed off site as prefabricated units with concrete backing by Thorp.
The winner projects will be announced on the 9th of November 2017.
