DKA Award 2014 Winner – Sophie Beagles

5 June 2014

For the 10th year running, DKA is proud to support the RIBA Part I architecture students at the University of Bath.

In recognition of their hard work, a small DKA judging panel (this year, composed of four University of Bath alumni) takes the yearly pilgrimage to 6East in search of the best computer generated graphics for the DKA Award. Based purely on the graphics exhibited, our eyes were unanimously drawn to a proposed orchard and community cidery project in Stroud.

Congratulations to Sophie Beagles from all at DKA!

Project description:

The Apple Exchange will act as a central hub to the Stroud Town Apple Project. The scheme will be focused around a cidery, collecting apples from existing and newly proposed community orchards. The residents of Stroud will also be able to donate home-grown apples, in exchange for a share of the cider or apple juice produced. The produce will be sold directly on site, through the bar, restaurant or shop. Visitors may view the cider production process, through a working exhibition space. The proposed community orchard will also be open to the public, offering orchard tours and workshops.
