Speaking on the nomination, Sarah said: “Being shortlisted for the 2022 Brick Awards is a great honour. The humble brick has such a rich and long history, it’s an elementary building material used in so many locations around the world, and it’s been a delight to work with this material to create Alphonso on the Willow Lake site, which was in itself the location of a huge and active brickworks a century ago.”
