The Society today welcomes Architecture 1B as one of its growing band of corporate members.
Architecture 1B is a small bespoke architectural practice based in Horbury. The company was formed at the end of 2012 by Darren Bailey who has over 20 years’ experience and has worked at some of the North’s largest architectural practices delivering projects of varying scale and sectors, such as Headingley cricket ground and central square in Newcastle. In 2003 Darren was a founding member of Leeds based practice architecture 2B alongside Nick Brown which was commended with various awards.
Wakefield Civic Society president Kevin Trickett MBE said “We are delighted to welcome Darren as a corporate member. Darren has worked with us before and has from time to time turned to us on behalf of his clients for our thoughts on projects he has been working on in Wakefield, a really good example of how developers and their architects and designers can work co-operatively with civic societies. Not only is he helping to bring some exciting new projects to our area but, in becoming a corporate member of the Society, he is showing support for what we do as a community organisation.”
The Society offers three categories of Corporate Membership, details of which can be found here.
