We're proud to announce our Whitechapel estate (pictured) received a special award at New London Architecture (NLA)'s prestigious 2012 New London Awards, held on Tuesday night.
The annual event recognises the capital's best projects both completed and on the drawing board from across 12 sectors.
The scheme was praised for its balconies and provision of more than the mayor’s minimum amenity space, with one judge commenting:
"I’m astonished at what great quality they get from what is essentially affordable housing.
"Historically they have done fantastic work – it is great to see they are still doing such great projects."
Nominees will be featured in the NLA galleries at The Building Centre, and featured in a special NLA publication.
