The awards shortlist has just been released and they want your opinion
For the fist time ever, the winners of the Solent Design Awards – which assess the best-designed building or space that makes the greatest contribution to the surrounding community – can be voted for by the public.
Here are just a few of the shortlisted projects so far:
Long Curtain, Portsmouth – The Nelson Trail
Structural, landscaping and interpretive enhancements of the oldest part of the City by means of a themed approach based on Nelson’s associations with the area.
Dennis Sciama Building, Portsmouth
The first building in the planned re-development of the University of Portsmouth’s northern quarter, the building is stand alone as well as taking its place in a series of landscaped courts. It provides a social hub for students and staff, dining halls and kitchen, teaching spaces and houses the Institute of Cosmology and Gravitation.
Northam Homezone, Southampton
Traffic calming measures through means of a new layout of roads and pavements have reduced speeds to less than 10 mph which, along with the introduction of a doorstep green park and planting, have made the area much safer and more appealing in which to live and play.
