The project was awarded Housing Project of the Year (over £10 million) and Editor’s Choice Award.
Kings Crescent Estate was applauded by the AJ Architecture Awards jury for demonstrating a ‘holistic approach that is socially and spatially innovative’. The project represents an alternative model to large-scale demolition and rebuild and demonstrates that the delivery of high-quality public housing is both achievable and sustainable. The jury commented ‘This is housing with character and without compromise. This is what all councils should be aiming for’.
