The National Eisteddfod of Wales’ Gold Medal for Architecture recognises the importance of architecture in the nation's culture and honours architects achieving the highest design standards, & George+Tomos Penseiri : Architects Cyf. have been shortlisted alongside other top Architects from across Wales.
Our design & development work on 'Cletwr', a community run non-profit venture located in Tre'r Ddol, North Ceredigion provides a shop, cafe and community hub which has gone from strength to strength since opening in Sep 2017. Through diversification - displaying local artist' work, providing a community meeting space, offering Welsh lessons etc. makes the site a valuable asset for the local community, as well as an excellent place to stop for passing trade.
A combination of painted black timber cladding & black corrugate roofing, along with large glazed openings and natural internal finishes make this new structure a striking architectural feature.
Awarded to buildings completed between 1 January 2015 and 1 March 2018, one of the shortlisted buildings will be awarded the Gold Medal for Architecture on August 4 at the National Eisteddfod of Wales held in Cardiff.
