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’.
