A notable building project in Keyworth has been awarded the prestigious biennial Harry Johnson Award 2016 in a ceremony yesterday (Friday, 25 November).
The award for best new building within a Nottinghamshire historic setting and is sponsored jointly by the Nottinghamshire Building Preservation Trust and the Campaign to Protect Rural England in recognition of the part played by the late Harry Johnson in his work for both organisations.
The Award for the best New Build property was won by Wrights Place Development, 22-30a Selby Lane, Keyworth.
In a derelict garage site, next to the Keyworth Conservation Area, the volunteer Area Advisory Group were supportive of this particular choice of redevelopment of the site by William Davis Homes with the help of architects, Stephen George and Partners.
The design acknowledges the existing older cottages and newer house designs on Selby Lane in a restricted palette of brick and rendered walls and slate roofs, dormers and porches and provides a variety of property types for private buyers. A tremendous improvement to the area.
