Northern design Awards

The Northern Design Awards are one of the most sought after awards in the industry and to be named winners was a massive achievement for us. The judging panel is made up of some of the UKs leading architects, interior designers, engineers and creative designers and all nominations are judged anonymously so judges are able to assess only the creative design rather than any company reputation and stature. This makes the NDA awards unique in that the award is given purely for the quality and innovation of the design.

Best Residential Architectural Practice

The Best Residential Architectural Practice is an extremely competitive category attracting some of the goliath names in architecture. The award category receives nomination from architectural practices from all of the North covering Northern Ireland, North Wales, Scotland and Northern England. The judges look for consistent, high quality design across a range of design styles and client budgets. Entries are assessed on how the design responds to its setting, client brief and uses cutting edge technology or techniques.

“We are overjoyed to receive this award. To be recognised by your peers and esteemed judges as being outstanding in what we do in design in our small bespoke practice is extremely fulfilling. It motivates us to push the boundaries even further and create completely unique designs tailored specifically to each individual client and site – Simon Lewis-Pierpoint – Director of Architecture at SDA Architecture.”

Architecture Achievements

Over the last decade we have worked with some of the most challenging sites, created some truly ground breaking designs, worked with a vast array of client budgets and styles and have succeeded on applications where others have failed. This gives us a massive sense of achievement in our day to day roles but to receive this award is the icing on the cake!
