We’ve just heard that our Parkwood development in Winchester has been shortlisted for a prestigious heritage award.
The development, on the former site of Beaconsfield House – the Community Action Hampshire HQ in Andover Road – comprises five four-bed homes and six two and three-bed apartments. This week we heard that the City of Winchester Trust has shortlisted it for a design award.
We worked closely with Winchester architect Paul Bulkeley, of Snug Architects Ltd and city planners, to devise the contemporary scheme to meet the brief of sophisticated, cutting-edge, urban design within its mature tree setting.
Textured timber, zinc and a solid-coloured, sharp-edged brick were some of the materials used to create the eye-catching homes, many of which have balconies amongst the tree tops.
The City of Winchester Trust awards are for developments which display a high standard of design and which make a lasting contribution to the city.
The final results will be announced later in the year.
