The winners of the 2017 Charnwood Design Awards were announced at an awards ceremony on Wednesday, November 29.
The awards recognised high-quality building design in the borough and the excellent work of building owners, agents and contractors.
The winning designs were: Loughborough Endowed Schools Preparatory School and Roecliffe Hall in Woodhouse Eves.
Roecliffe Hall dates from circa 1800 and was completely renovated by the current owners in 2012, from a commercial property to a family home.
Loughborough Endowed Schools Preparatory School has had a two-storey extension and the existing building has been remodelled to provide permanent teaching space. The building also has a number of energy saving technologies.
Councillor Eric Vardy, Lead Member for Planning, Inward Investment and Tourism Strategy said: “This was a fantastic event to recognise the positive contribution that these building designs have made to the built and natural environment.
“The finalists were all high-quality designs that benefit the people who live, work and visit our borough.
“Congratulations to all the winners and finalists on an excellent achievement.”
The Charnwood Design Awards encourage and recognise high standards of design in the built environment and demonstrate how the Council’s vision for high-quality design, as set out in the Core Strategy which guides development in Charnwood, is being met.
