News / Native collect RICS 2018 Award!

Chris Walker and James Newton from Native Architects were delighted to collect the 2018 RICS regional award in the Tourism and Leisure category for William’s Den. The team attended the award ceremony dinner on Friday evening in Leeds, in which William’s Den was chosen as the winner from a shortlist of high quality schemes across the Yorkshire region.


The judges said:

“The scheme is a fabulous example of rural diversification completed to the highest of standards. Detailed design and end user experience has been considered in every aspect. High quality natural finishes have been used throughout and sustainable design incorporated in every possible circumstance, resulting in an overall scheme which offers a unique venue for the region and which blends seamlessly into the beautiful countryside.Williams Den is a true gem of a visitor attraction and one for Yorkshire to be proud of!”

Following the win, the project is now entered for the national awards which are decided in London later this year… watch this space!
