Double shortlisting in Housing Design Awards 2022

We are delighted to announce that two of our projects have been shortlisted in this year's Housing Design Awards: The Courtyards in Preston and Carlton Dene in the City of Westminster.

At The Courtyards, we have put each principle of the HAPPI report into practice to provide 60 independent living homes for affordable rent and communal facilities for people over the age of 55 with varying care needs. This has been built for Community Gateway Association.

Carlton Dene, Westminster City Council’s new flagship extra care scheme, comprises 65 extra care and 22 general needs homes. We are targeting an ambitious sustainability brief, seeking Passivhaus accreditation for the general needs block and the PHI low energy standard for the extra care portion.

The winners of this year's awards will be announced at the ceremony in July. In the meantime, you can find the full shortlist here.
