At the LABC Building Excellence awards, the School House project we worked on in Griffydam won in the ‘Best Change of Use of an Existing Building or Conversion’ category.

The School House project entailed converting a former school into a family home. Working with David Granger Architectural Design and Lychgate Homes, we were asked to design the exterior landscaping and planting. You can read more about it here and here.

The awards ceremony was held at Athena in Leicester on 10th June and was attended by over 350 architects, builders, developers, planners – and us!

As regional winners, the School House will be representing the East Midlands at the LABC Grand Finals, to be held in November in London. Wish us luck!
