City of Winchester Trust
Design Awards 2015


City Centre Housing Scheme wins award.

A scheme of 16 homes on the site of the old Winchester Laundry in Gordon Road scooped the City of Winchester Trust Design Award 2015.

Chair of the Awards Panel, Hans Klaentschi complemented the designers, T2 Architects on presenting an interesting urban solution on a difficult site. He said “A rather calm internal ‘courtyard’ space has been achieved that is diagonally traversed by a pedestrian route linking Hyde Abbey Road with Gordon Road. The scale along this route varies greatly with individual houses of very different styles to the east and north. Great care went into materials and detail and the whole thing has a good air about it, though it is the urban, rather than the architectural aspects that are most convincing.” The development was carried out by Drew Smith Homes who were presented with a blue plaque by the Mayor of Winchester at the Awards evening on 22nd October.

The scheme stood out amongst the 14 schemes submitted, all of which have made a valuable contribution to Winchester’s townscape over the past 3 years.
