New architectural triumphs in Norwich were celebrated by a heritage group which crowned six winners at its awards ceremony.
The Norwich Society held its Design Awards last night, an event organised every two years to recognise the best of modern architecture in the city.
Presentations were made to six winners, chosen from more than 35 nominations, in different categories of buildings, including commercial, community, and residential.
Jonathan Hooton, chairman of The Norwich Society, said: 'We were delighted with the number and quality of nominations.
'Norwich is an absolutely wonderful city with many fine buildings and it's important to us that new buildings reflect that.'

When deciding the winners, the society's judges looked for originality of design, the scale, use of materials, and the effect on the surrounding environment.
