In the meantime, both HGP Architects and Highwood are delighted the judging panel has held the proposed Old Mansion House scheme at North Stoneham Park in such high regard – its feedback stated:
‘The Old Mansion Site has been designed with lifestyle in mind, creating homes with a sense of belonging and community, where residents can remain active and enjoy an exclusive, clean living environment. The proposal successfully achieves this by reinvigorating the heritage of the site and provides a coherence and language to the key spaces.’
They add: ‘Practical aspects of residential design: access, turning heads, servicing have been well considered and integrated into the layout in such a way that they are hidden within the network so that emphasis is made on sense of place, arrival experience and character, positively contributing to the area.’
It’s now hoped the Planning Awards 2020 will proceed as planned and that the Old Mansion House scheme will be added to North Stoneham Park’s award-winning run of industry accolades.
