This week we attended the annual Social Housing conference in London. The conference draws together the key players in the social housing sector to ‘debate, discuss and grapple with the latest strategic challenges.’ It was great to hear about some of the emerging innovations that are improving both productivity and choice. We are excited about our continued collaborations in the sector and the role good design plays when aligned with innovative finance and delivery mechanisms.

BCI Awards 2018

We are delighted that our Milford-on-sea Beach Huts won the Climate Resilience Project of the Year at the BCI Awards. This is the industries leading award and we feel very privileged to have been part of the winning team. Our thanks go to New Forest District Council who, as client, gave us the opportunity to properly develop the projects full potential. We are also grateful to our collaborators Ramboll and contractors, Knights Brown. It is great to think that this nationally significant project was delivered entirely by a local New Forest team.

With the IPCC recently increasing the urgency of their warnings it is essential that our industry continues to develop innovative solutions to climate resilience. Our hope is that Milford-On-Sea Beach Huts will encourage others commissioning sea defence projects to be similarly innovative.

Bailey Close coming together

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2018

Great to see our development of five affordable flats for Winchester City Council’s New Homes Team are coming together. The development sits snuggly into a steeply retained site in a former garage court. These largely single aspect units have an angled facade that frame views, and adds dynamism to the facade. Not long to go now.

Siliver Hill Antiques Market gets underway

Monday, August 6th, 2018

We are delighted that civic chiefs have confirmed Winchester’s historic Antique Market will now become a hub for theatre, music and the arts, in the first redevelopment under the Silver Hill 2 scheme. Having been part of the team developing the wider masterplan we are pleased to have also been part of the first steps towards seeing the area rejuvenated.

Officially known as the Central Winchester Regeneration Project (CWR), the scheme aims to revamp the area surrounding the building, with the improvement of the Antique Market being one of Winchester City Council’s short-term goals.

The newly-formed ‘Nutshell Arts’ Community Interest Company plans to re-brand the venue as ‘The Nutshell’ and offer it as an accessible place for creatives to use for rehearsals, workshops, exhibitions and small-scale productions; alongside resident companies the Discarded Nut Theatre Company and ENCORE Youth Theatre. Richard Harrison of Snug Architects worked with them to develop design ideas and ensure the space within the venue can be fully accessible.
