Architecture Awards 2023

On the 27th November 2023 we celebrated some of the best architecture in the county at our Architecture Awards. The location was the Assembly Rooms at Buxton Crescent. We were delighted that architectural historian, writer, consultant and lecturer Jeremy Munson agreed to present the awards. It was also wonderful that Eddie Tennant, grandson of Deborah Cavendish, Duchess of Devonshire (former patron of our charity) was able to present the award in her name for the outstanding overall project.

See below for the full list of winners and commendations. You can find out the details of each by looking through our news archive.
