We were delighted to find out last week that our entry to the ‘Don’t Move Improve’ awards has been shortlisted as one of the finalists. This means sadly we didn’t win the top prize, but to be shortlisted is a major achievement in such a competitive awards programme.
The idea behind the awards is to illustrate the importance and benefits of well designed home extensions and the impact good architecture can make to our living environments. It’s the second year New London Architecture has organised the awards and they are run in association with the London Development Agency, Mayor of London, RIBA London and a handful of commercial sponsors.
The project we entered is Landford Road, where we had extended and fully refurbished a semi-detached Edwardian terrace. You can see the project in our portfolio but essentially the main features include a large rear extension and the careful refurbishment of the property to ensure the original features – such as the architraves and moldings – were not lost in the development. This has created a smooth blend of new and old and ultimately a happy client.
All of the winners and shortlisted projects are on display at The Building Centre in London. Oh and we took a couple of photos you can see below too…
