North Devon Students Win RIBA Prize
Libby Purl and Oscar Allen, who currently attend Holsworthy Community College have been awarded 1st and 2nd prize within the RIBA South West Work Experience Competition recently for their outstanding design work. The brief was to design an observation station for lifeguard operations in which they were able to choose the location of the project utilising any beach or lakeside in Cornwall or Devon.
Both Libby and Oscar were to work on their design submission for a week alongside their two mentors at Trewin Design, Lydia Rowe and Anthony Vickery during July of this year. The competition was organised by the RIBA Cornwall branch involving several architectural practices throughout the region and judging took place in September.
Yesterday the results were announced and we are thrilled for Libby and Oscar.
