71 Grey Street used to be the Turk's Head Hotel, and is now a Grade II listed building in Grainger Town. The building was used by Barclays as their North East Headquarters in the 1980s, but had since become run down. The Hanro Group and Ryder Architecture transformed the building into state-of-the-art offices for a number of different companies, securing the future of the building and giving it a new lease of life.

The RICS judges were impressed with the innovative design used, including the "boutique entrance" and clever use of exposed services.
