Nominated by Philip Miller as an exemplar for the design of a modern supermarket. Eco friendly and almost invisible in a sensitive landscape. Forget political and moral issues and judge it as a piece of architecture

 

NO VOTES

Unanimously nominated by the committee

 

The best thing to happen to Berwick in recent years.  Perhaps this deserves a special award as it is unfair to judge other projects against this.

 

THE WINNER

Nominated by Alison Cowe. Small things can make a big impact on the streetscape. Looks as if it has been there since the 19th century.
