Awards celebrate the most innovative ideas in British housing
Those wishing to enter the 2015 National Housing Design Awards must submit their proposals soon: the competition organiser is accepting entries online until 27 February.
Since 1947, these awards have celebrated the most innovative ideas in British housing, and shown the way forward for policymakers and industry. They include schemes not yet built but which have planning permission, as well as completed occupied schemes.
Potential winners are visited by ‘cross-sector judges’, who interview residents and the local authority alongside architects and developers, and winning schemes are filmed to help broadcast their excellence.
This year is the 10th anniversary of the Richard Feilden Award for Affordable or Community Focused Housing, which is supported by the government’s Homes and Communities Agency.
