Housing Design Award Winner
As the respected awards ceremony turns 70, Ike Ijeh looks at the winners and concludes that, when it comes to innovative new schemes, councils are leading the way!
This arguably offers the most romantic and picturesque urban prospect of all the finalists. For years this scheme had proved difficult to develop, with planners balking at previous proposals they felt presented too much of a barrier to the river. This scheme solves the problem by celebrating the site’s superb location on the banks of the River Exe as an opportunity rather than a constraint.
A series of pitched roof blocks clustered along the river’s banks create a jumbled roofscape that is almost medieval in nature. By burrowing a dense network of public routes and spaces between the blocks – again a medievally inspired response – the crucial issue of maintaining access to the river is also resolved.
