Practice rises above four fellow shortlisted teams to bag St Michael le Belfrey job
LDN Architects has won the competition to reorder a grade I-listed church in York, rising above four fellow shortlisted teams in the eyes of judges.
The practice beat Purcell, Simpson & Brown and Steyn Studio working with conservation specialist Anthony Grimshaw Associates in a RIBA competition to create a “beautiful, flexible modern space” in the 16th-century St Michael le Belfrey Church next to York Minster.
Keith Williams, architectural advisor and competition jury chair, said the “great challenge” of the process had been to create a “new legacy” for the building – a 21st-century contribution to its 500-year history that facilitated evolving patterns of worship.
