Work to turn a former social club into a creative space with public use has won its architects a national award.
The re-invention of the late Georgian townhouse and former Con Club, in Framlingham, has won the Diaphoros Prize in the Georgian Group Architectural Awards 2021.
The building, which dates back to 1810, is being turned into a creative space with public use and the first phase of work has included complete rewiring, replumbing and completion of café, studios and flat.
The second phase is yet to start.
Hoare Ridge and Morris Architects said online that it was: "Very affirming to be acknowledged in this way by those whose opinions we greatly respect. It is a project of which we are very proud - although by no means finished work yet."
