This small building revitalizes the Square near the 11thC Coldingham Priory. Vigorous community effort, with the architect playing a central role from the outset, providing design vision and fostering the collaboration of multiple agencies, enabled the village to retain a vital piece of rural infrastructure then at risk. The end result is a new multi functional, sustainable template with the village Post Office combined with retail, coffee shop, community meeting space and an interactive interpretation wall to promote nearby visitor attractions. A small but committed local contractor delivered the building to a demanding timetable and the building has fitted seamlessly into village life.
