Piccadilly Lofts was completed in 2015 for Northminster Ltd, and was recognised at the 2015 York Design Awards with a Judges Special Award.

York Design Awards’ mission is to encourage designers of new developments in the city to maintain the very highest standards – to create buildings and spaces that ‘delight’.

The judges said of Piccadilly Lofts, " A very inventive reworking of a near derelict 1930’s car showroom on an awkward triangular site between the river and Terry Avenue.  It provides seven one- and two-bed apartments over two stories of commercial space.   The apartments are tightly planned (as befits this centre-city site) and ingeniously designed with bedrooms and internal balconies on mezzanine levels carved out of the roof volumes."
