Ben Cunliffe Architects Ltd is celebrating today having won Best International Leisure Architecture for the Gilpin Hotel & Lake House’s Spa Lodges, at The Daily Telegraph’s International Property Awards, which took place last night at The Savoy in London. This is in addition to achieving the North West Leisure Architecture award last month. BCA were the only shortlisted entry for the UK and hence were entered into the International category.
The objective of the International Property Awards is to recognise excellence in the property industry worldwide and to promote an international standard. The judging panel included Lord Caithness, Lord Best and the Earl of Liverpool. The winning designs were judged by the International Property Awards panel of highly-regarded industry experts to be “amongst the most innovative, exceptional, and ambitious projects of 2016”.
Ben Cunliffe stated, “None of this would be possible without the support of both my family and the Lake District National Park Authority. We have a great working relationship with the team at LDNPA. They have supported our progressive designs over the last 15 years which incorporate local materials and are built by local trades. We specialise in sustainable architecture which sits well within our very special landscape. I feel exceptionally fortunate to have been championed by my family who own the fabulous Gilpin Hotel and Lake House”.
