2022 RIBA East Midlands Award Winner
The Lyth Building by Evans Vettori Architects has been announced as the 2022 Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) East Midlands Building of the Year.
Nottingham Trent University’s (NTU) Brackenhurst Campus is home to the School of Animal, Rural and Environmental Sciences. The Lyth Building is the initial element of a major investment plan to improve the facilities, teaching and research for staff, students and visiting members of the public.
The Awards jury said of the project: “The Lyth sits elegantly into its context of listed buildings and designed landscapes, while giving a centre and focus to the burgeoning campus of NTU. It has raised the bar for future development.”
RIBA President, Simon Allford said:
“Winning a regional Building of the Year Award is a major achievement. Across the country projects have been selected for this accolade because they are exemplars of the very best of innovative, intelligent and delightful design. The results of positive collaboration between architect and client, and design team and contractor, they demonstrate that high quality, sustainable architecture can positively impact the lives of the people that engage with it. My warmest congratulations to all those involved.”
The RIBA Regional Building of the Year Awards were presented at a ceremony at the RIBA’s Headquarters in London on Tuesday evening.
The Lyth Building is one of five projects which received a 2022 RIBA East Midlands Award, announced earlier this month.
All RIBA East Midlands Award winners will now be considered for a highly-coveted RIBA National Award in recognition of their architectural excellence, which will be announced in June. The shortlist for the RIBA Stirling Prize for the best building of the year will be drawn from the RIBA National Award-winning projects later in the year.

2022 RIBA East Midlands Award winners announced
Thursday 28th of April 2022 – Five projects have been awarded RIBA East Midlands Awards – including a new building at Nottingham Trent University’s Brackenhurst campus by regionally-based practice, Evans Vettori Architects.
The 2022 RIBA East Midlands Award winning projects are:
- Ada Belfield Centre and Belper Library, Derbyshire by Glancy Nicholls Architects
- Derwent Valley Villa, Derbyshire by Blee Halligan
- Ravine House, Chesterfield by Chiles Evans + Care Architects
- The Lyth Building, Southwell by Evans Vettori Architects
- The Parchment Works, Northamptonshire by Will Gamble Architects
The five projects were selected by the expert jury, who visited all of the shortlisted projects.
Regional Jury Chair, Roddy Langmuir, said of this year’s award winners:
“The jury spent two days visiting shortlisted projects of all scales across the length and breadth of the East Midlands, and were impressed by the commitment and enthusiasm shown by both clients and their architects.
The projects were reviewed carefully against the RIBA awards criteria, and the jury agreed that each winner had raised the bar for regional architecture. The scale ranged from a small domestic extension to a large campus university hub. The creative re-use of existing fabric was a common theme, as was the extensive use of timber, as the profession turns its focus to architecture that leads the way towards a low-carbon future. We saw rigour in the quality of detail and imagination in how to bring different parts of a community together. Our congratulations go to all the East Midlands regional award winners.”
