Client Network Homes and SW9
Awards RIBA London Award 2017
An exemplary housing project that exercises fine detail alongside restraint. It provides equality between market and affordable housing within a single building via a grand, concierge-supervised entrance lobby.
The building was an exceptionally well-delivered Design and Build Contract. A great relationship between the architect and contractor permitted fine detailing even where cost savings were applied.
The jury were impressed with the consultation process and the decision to use a shared entrance lobby and bike store. The low overall service charges, due to the efficiency of the plan and circulation, meant that a concierge could be installed in the lobby. Surveillance of this area has presumably helped to keep it in good condition. The in-pavement rubbish collection was also much admired.
The jury felt that this was a true exemplar for beautifully designed, modest but elegant social housing.
