Two of our recent project have been shortlisted for the 2015 Housing Design Awards. Darbishire Place (John Fisher Street) for Peabody Trust with Niall McLaughlin Architects and 1-6 Copper Lane (Springdale Road) for a co-housing group Springdale Gardens Ltd. With Henley Halebrown Rorrison Architects. There are a total of 22 completed schemes short listed nationally, so our two schemes represent nearly 10% of that total.
SDB is pleased to announce that two of its projects were shortlisted for the RIBA London Regional awards. This was out of a total shortlist across London of 68 projects. Although Copper Lane did not make it through to a Regional Award Darbishire Place was successful and is now automatically put forward to the National Awards shortlist. This is the second project SDB has undertaken for Niall Mclaughlin architects, the first Evelyn Road in Silvertown was also a Regional and National RIBA award winner. Both projects were for the Peabody Trust.
