Middleport Pottery wins national architecture award

The Prince’s Regeneration Trust is delighted to announce that Middleport Pottery in Stoke-on-Trent has won a prestigious 2015 RIBA National Award.

The Grade II star listed Pottery was today announced as a winner of the much-coveted annual awards that are given to new schemes considered to be of the highest architectural merit in the country.

Middleport Pottery was praised by professional body the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) for “the excellent craftsmanship and architectural skill that has gone in to its restoration”.

It was one of three National Award winners in the cultural category, alongside the National Theatre in London and The Whitworth in Manchester.

The award was given to architects Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios (FCBStudios), which was appointed by PRT to carry out the restoration of Middleport Pottery.

In April, the Pottery won three RIBA West Midlands Awards: the Building of the Year Award; Conservation Project of the Year Award; and a Regional Award.

The building has now won a total of eight awards in the past year.
