One of Europe's most eco-friendly buildings in Norwich has added to its impressive tally of awards.
The Enterprise Centre at the University of East Anglia has scooped a national accolade from the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), after winning three RIBA East awards last month.
RIBA national awards are given to buildings recognised as making a significant contribution to architecture.
Judges said the Enterprise Centre 'exudes a sense of calmness' and is a 'tour de force in the exploration and use of sustainable materials but also a remarkable place to work and to enjoy'.
The building, which celebrates its second anniversary this summer, now holds 26 awards.
