The Sunday Times British Home Awards 2017
Melior Street shortlisted for the mixed use category.
14th Jul 2017
Our Melior Street scheme is shortlisted for The Sunday Times British Homes Awards. Nominated in the mixed-use category, Melior Street comprises 37 residential units, 4 commercial units at ground level, and includes improvements to the Manna Centre for homeless people and Church facilities.
Located within the Bermondsey Conservation Area and adjacent to Borough Market, the design approach of Melior Street uses simple elements based around a regenerated street scene and a respect for what is already there – and the elevational treatment unifies a cohesive design that addresses its context both in articulation and choice of materials, using an external reflection of an internal layout to create a varied and dynamic façade. The use of brickwork in a contemporary way grounds the building in its context and knits in with the Conservation Area.
The Sunday Times British Homes Awards recognise the talent, effort and innovation of architects, designers, housebuilders, affordable housing providers and developers working across the residential property sector today. They celebrate the quality of the homes and communities being created in the UK, showcasing the best in design to key players in the property market and central and local government. The winner will be announced in September at an awards ceremony to be held at the London Marriott Hotel in Grosvenor Square.
