2021 Yorkshire Residential Property Awards winners revealed

This house near Oxenhope designed by architects Bramhall Blenkharn Leonard won the award for best design

A new developer specializing in Passivhaus construction and a small but powerful architectural firm were among the winners of the 2021 Yorkshire Residential Property Awards. The event, hosted by Variety, the children’s charity, was held in New Dock Hall, Leeds, with David Flatman, sports expert and former rugby union player, as a friend.

The 2020 prices had to be canceled due to the pandemic, so the registration deadline extended over a longer period to accommodate projects completed earlier so that no individual or company misses due to Covid. This extremely enjoyable evening proved that the region’s real estate industry is rich in innovation, talent, expertise and this essential ingredient for success in these difficult times: resilience.
