Shortlisted for Seven NDA awards!

We have become finalists in seven categories at the Northern Design Awards! What an achievement for the Concorde BGW Group team!

Our shortlisted projects are:


  • Amazing Space for work on The Bedford

The Bedford –


With more commercially driven spaces offering creative work, rest and play areas this award serves to recognise those that break the mould; not only being visually stunning but delivering exceptional functionality and innovative style.



  • Hotel Interior Design for work on Broad Street Townhouse 

Broad Street Townhouse –


This award is open to all original hotel creations across the North - large or small. The judges are looking for striking use of design, space and budget within our growing hospitality industry


Broad Street Townhouse is a new boutique city-centre bolthole offering eleven impeccably designed bedrooms, café by day and a speakeasy bar, The Blind Pig, by night.

We created a scheme incorporating a reception, coffee lounge and 11 boutique bedrooms reflecting the heritage of Bath and incorporating aspiring home comforts. Located in a popular area of Bath town centre with many tourist attractions, the additional boutique bedrooms were very much welcomed by the local planning authority as well as the listed building authority who rejoiced at the renovation of a previously unoccupied listed building. 



  • Hotel Interior Design for work on The Bedford

This award is open to all original hotel creations - large or small. The judges are looking for striking use of design, space and budget within our growing hospitality industry.

Once planning permission was obtained, 15 individually designed en-suite bedrooms were built on the second and third floors of The Bedford. The bedrooms add another layer of luxury. Expect Hypnos beds, Egyptian cotton linen, roll top baths, rain showers and bespoke artwork for a truly memorable stay. 

Access to the hotel is gained from Fernal Road via the newly built passenger lift which takes visitors straight to the third-floor lobby for check-in.



  • Interior design project <£500k for work on Lost & Found Sheffield

Lost & Found Sheffield –


Open to both interior design practices and individuals, our judging panel is seeking the one outstanding commercial design project that embodies Northern style, innovation and design.


Step inside the Sheffield Lost & Found to discover Professor Victoria B Darcy’s world of wonder, a lady with a passion for horticulture which became intertwined with her new-found passion for conservation. 


As an ode to the Professor and the Botanical Gardens, a short distance away from the new L&F site on Ecclesall road, the venue was filled wild flowers, plenty of lush greenery, climbing cherry blossom trees and hanging plants.



  • Interior Design Project >£1m for work on The Bedford

The Bedford –


Over recent years, we’ve seen renewed investment and interest in state-of-the-art leisure and business facilities. The judges will view the innovative design solutions found within this category.

The iconic Bedford in Balham combines it all, it is an unrivalled pub, club, restaurant, live music and entertainment venue plus 15 stunning boutique bedrooms. Additional function spaces include a decadent ballroom and private cocktail bar.



  • Restaurant and Bar Design £250k-£750k for work on The Hercules 

The Hercules –


The judges are looking to find the best social space in the North. Open to completed bars and restaurants of all sizes, they are looking for designs that raise your space a cut above the rest.


Named after the circus strongman Hercules, the pub brings the history surrounding the creation of the modern circus and Lambeth’s entertainment-rich past back into the spotlight, as well as craft beer, cask ale and contemporary British cuisine.



  • Restaurant and Bar Design > £750k for work on The Bedford

The Bedford –


The Bedford has five beautiful bars offering the finest artisan spirits, craft beers, cocktails, wine and champagnes. At the request of the Listed Building Officer, the horseshoe shaped bar on the ground floor retained its original tiled bar apron and the Saloon Bar has kept its original back bar fitting which has been refurbished to the highest standards. 


The Ballroom and the Cocktail Bar on the on the first floor provide the ultimate place to party. The cocktail bar was newly built and is themed around a classic 1920’s gin bar with a bookable, private dining room to one side.
