Bourne Estate in Clerkenwell, EC1 has been awarded Housing Award at the New London Architecture Awards 2018.
The Housing category was open to multi-unit residential developments of any tenure, from social housing to PRS to prime resi, creating exemplary new places for people to live.
Steve Leakey, Managing Director of Higgins Construction comments, “Congratulations to all involved in Bourne Estate. As contractor we are delighted to have played a significant part in the regeneration of this Grade II listed Edwardian estate.”
Bourne Estate, which Higgins Construction was appointed as contractor by London Borough of Camden, has delivered 75 new mixed tenure homes through sensitive redevelopment of the southern proportion of the Grade II estate together with community hall and landscaping.
Matthew Lloyd Architects LLP was selected as architects by the residents following a competitive tender process and developed the design of the estate through continuous consultation with the residents ensuring it reflected the inherent qualities of the existing buildings.
The New London Awards recognise the very best in architecture, planning and development in the capital, including both new and proposed projects across all sectors of the built environment, selected by an international expert jury.
