A building at a County Durham castle has been named as the region’s best new building in a competition which also singled out a country cottage, a former fire station and a modern glamping tower.

The renovated Tower and Faith Museum at Auckland Castle took the top prize at the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) North East Awards 2024, held to recognise exceptional design in all size of buildings. The North East 2024 Awards were announced at a ceremony in Newcastle, where Auckland Castle, Tower and Faith Museum won North East Building of the Year Award 2024 after judges said the project constitutes “a valuable extension to the town, offering visitors and locals moments of amusement, reflection, and education while supporting the longevity of the built heritage.”
