Nine buildings, ranging from rural homes to a museum, have been shortlisted for 2023 RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) East Midlands Awards.
The shortlisted projects are:
- Destination Longshaw by Architect Studio Gedye Ltd
- Dryden Enterprise Centre by Evans Vettori Architects
- Joules Head Office by Edge
- Kingsfield Pond by Jonathan Hendry Architects Ltd
- Lincoln Cathedral Visitor Centre by Simpson & Brown with Landscape Projects

RIBA East Midlands Jury Chair James Boon, Director at James Boon Architects, said:
“The East Midlands has a rich, varied landscape and history which is reflected in this year’s shortlist; from the visitor centre high up in the Peak District to reinvigorated ecclesiastical and industrial heritage buildings. Delightfully crafted private houses have also proven a strong point.”
All shortlisted projects will be assessed by a regional jury, and the winning projects will be announced later this Spring.
Regional Award winners are considered for several RIBA Special Awards including the RIBA Sustainability Award and the RIBA Building of the Year.
Regional Award winners will also be considered for a highly coveted RIBA National Award in recognition of their architectural excellence, the results of which will be announced in the Summer.
The shortlist for the RIBA Stirling Prize for the best building of the year in the UK will then be drawn from the RIBA National Award-winning projects, and the Stirling Prize winner will be announced in October.
