Wynbrook Development Reaches Final Six of RIBA East Midlands Exemplars in Housing Development
The Award-Winning West Place Court residential housing development built by Wynbrook Homes and designed by Rayner Davies Architects has reached the final six schemes in consideration for the East Midlands RIBA Exemplars in Housing Development Exhibition.
Case Studies where invited to be submitted to the RIBA East Midlands to identify exemplars of good design for medium scale new housing in the region to form an exhibition this autumn, and to help inform the future promotion of good design in housing.
The West Place Court Development located in West Bridgford, Nottingham is tucked away amongst the Victorian house filled streets, the site was originally occupied by several long-standing small light industrial units. Working within tight site restrictions, Wynbrook has demolished these units and created a delightful, small community consisting of eight new eco-friendly contemporary residences (two detached bungalows and six 2/3 bedroom semi-detached homes) set in an early 1900’s walled courtyard. The development is securely gated and features a small frontage area for resident and visitor parking with an attractive entrance area featuring planted borders perfectly framed with capped low walls and access pathways complimented with subtle night time lighting
A high number of exceptional entries were received by the RIBA East Midlands and it is understood to have been a difficult task to reduce this down to a mere six entries to go on and receive a visit from the RIBA Expert Panel.
Having reached the final six, feedback from the West Place Court Development was highly complementary and positive with comments relating to the quality of materials and finishes and the sympathetic design consideration given to the existing surroundings.
The winning projects are to be exhibited as part of the Love Architecture Festival in Leicester, at which presentations on the case studies will be made to an invited audience of developers, housebuilders, local authorities, housing associations, and architects.
In addition, the winning schemes will also be exhibited at the Urban Room in Nottingham and other related events and conferences are being planned over the coming year.
