Architect’s win for striking new build city home

Have your say

SHEFFIELD architectural design company Coda Studios has won another top industry prize for its innovative and groundbreaking work.

A property at Worrall Road in Worrall, on the outskirts of Sheffield, has won the best self-build prize at the prestigious Build It Magazine 2012 awards at the National Self Build and Renovation Centre.

The Worrall house is a striking contemporary five- bedroom family home built around a central drum clad in iroko hardwood and featuring two wings clad in Welsh slate and white render.

The award is the latest accolade for Coda, whose managing director David Cross was recently named South Yorkshire Property Personality of the Year. Coda also won a South Yorkshire and Humber LABC Building Excellence award for the new hexagonal extension to the Rob Royd Farm Shop in Worsbrough, Barnsley.

“This is another great victory for the Coda team,” said David.

“As self-build specialists we are particularly delighted to have received this national accolade, especially as it was voted for by self-build enthusiasts.”
