Enfield Council joins a shortlist of five clients who have been recognised for their role in championing and delivering high quality architecture.
Paul Karakusevic said: “Peter George has led an ambitious and design focused team at Enfield Council to start a borough-wide home building programme delivered directly by the council, of which Dujardin Mews is the pioneer scheme. Karakusevic Carson Architects have worked closely with Enfield, advising on strategy, design, and construction on this project and the wider strategy for thousands of new council-led homes.
Alongside this, Enfield is leading one of the country’s largest regeneration programmes at Meridian Water for a new neighbourhood of 10,000 homes and 7,000 new jobs in the Lee Valley. The council have been leading on infrastructure planning, a new station, site-wide masterplanning, production facilities and new industrial space for the 21st century, as well as the first phase delivery of 725 new mixed tenure homes.
Delivering successful projects in such complex locations is really challenging and the success of Dujardin Mews shows the commitment, investment and ambition needed to change the status quo and exhibit the potential of the public sector.”
