Sutherland Hussey win North Yorkshire community hub competition
Sutherland Hussey Architects and Gross max landscape architects have won an open RIBA competition to build a new community hub in the North Yorkshire village of Sessay, beating off three other shortlisted practices in the form of Daykin Marshall Studio, Faed Browne Architects and Gibson Thornley Architects.

Competition judge Wayne Hemingway commented: “Sutherland Hussey produced a thoughtful and forward thinking design which should provide a truly uplifting pavilion for the Sessay community and the wider region”.

Sutherland Hussey added: “We are delighted to be selected and looking forward to working further with the Sessay community, to develop their vision, for this new village hub. It's inspiring to work with a community who are so eager and willing to engage in contemporary architecture.”

The practice will now develop their scheme further with a view to submitting a planning application by March.
A mix of uses will be catered for in the new hall including sports, drama and a meeting space for local organisations
