The Dingle’s much-loved Florence Institute received a Royal Institute of British Architects architectural award for its outstanding restoration this year.

It was among four outstanding Merseyside buildings to be celebrated by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) fordesign excellence.

Affectionately dubbed “The Florrie”, the community centre was reopened by the Prince of Wales last January. An astonishing £6.2m restoration of the 1890-built structure by architects Purcell returned the fire-ravaged property to its original magnificence.

 

In direct contrast, the RIBA awards’ national category winner is Marks & Spencer’s sustainable store at Cheshire Oaks, Ellesmere Port, by architects Aukett Fitzroy Robinson.

It is also the company’s biggest store outside London.

Besides the Florrie – and also in extreme contrast to it – are two other North West regional RIBA winners.

 

“These projects represent architectural excellence on a national level, projects that go beyond the brief and exceed the client’s expectations.

“Investing in good design for our towns and communities is vital; even in hard times we must continue to create vibrant and inspiring buildings and places for future generations to use and enjoy.

“Best of luck to the national winners for architecture’s ‘Oscars’ –  the RIBA Stirling Prize.”
