The Barn cafe at the University of Cumbria’s Ambleside campus is in the running for a Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Regional Awards in 2014.

The building by John McAslan and Partners is one of 12 buildings in the North West shortlisted for the gong.

Others on the list include the Everyman Theatre, Liverpool by Haworth Tompkins

Andrew Ruffler, regional director of RIBA North West, said: “Once again the North West region has produced an incredibly strong and varied shortlist of buildings and practices. The regional jury had an extremely difficult task this year, particularly as the North West had the highest amount of projects of value £20m plus outside of London, so it is encouraging that regional practices and smaller schemes have also been recognised by the jury.”
