We are also proud to announce that Plymouth College of Art and Plymouth School of Creative Arts have been shortlisted for the AJ100 Client of the Year award, nominated by Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios because of the high level of trust that we placed in them, which led to the creation of a landmark building that now acts as a symbol of regeneration for visitors arriving in Plymouth. Additionally, Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios has been shortlisted for an AJ100 Employer of the Year award.

These new announcements come in addition to The Red House’s recent shortlisting for a RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) South West regional award and shortlisting for two 2016 Michelmores Property Awards, which showcase and celebrate the very best of the South West’s property and construction industry. The Red House is shortlisted in both the Building of the Year and Project of the Year with a Value Over £7million categories of the Michelmores Property Awards.

Plymouth School of Creative Arts was founded and is sponsored by Plymouth College of Art in 2013 as a radical new kind of mainstream city centre 3–16 all-through Free School that, together with the college, is establishing a progressive continuum of creative learning and practice from age four to Masters level study and beyond. The opening of The Red House was hailed by Sir Nicholas Serota, Director of Tate, as “an historic moment for education in this country” and it was designed by Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios, a group renowned for their inspirational arts and education architectural designs, which include art universities, galleries and exhibition spaces such as the Yorkshire Sculpture Park.

Thanks to your efforts and support, this is only the beginning.
