Sunderland hospices up for building prizes

Have your say

TWO hospices in Sunderland and a development in Seaham are in the running to be named the region’s best new buildings.

The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) has named the nine developments to be short-listed for a 2014 RIBA North East Award, and includes the Grace House Children’s Hospice in Southwick, and the new St Benedict’s Hospice and Specialist Centre for Palliative Care in Ryhope, along with the Seaham North Dock development.

Winners will be announced in May.
