A dazzling multi-coloured primary school building and a beautifully designed hospice have both scooped commendations at this year’s prestigious Civic Trust Awards.
Clapham Manor Primary School and The Trinity Hospice were both handed prestigious national awards that recognise the best in planning, architecture and design at this year’s annual ceremony held in Liverpool on Friday. (March 12)
The two schemes, given planning permission by Lambeth Council, are examples of the borough’s commitment to encourage and support well designed projects.
The extension at Clapham Manor Primary School, built by the council’s award-winning Building Schools for the Future (BSF) Primary and Community Team, serves as an example of how historic and contemporary buildings can be integrated.
Designed by architects dRMM and delivered by contractors The Construction Partnership, the extension was described by judges as a ‘robust, beautiful, and modern building which extends and complements the older school’.
Similarly, the Trinity Hospice was also recognised as an example of exceptional architecture which intertwines old and modern buildings.
Councillor Nigel Haseldon, Lambeth Council Cabinet Member for Sustainability, said: “These projects are culturally, socially, and economically beneficial and have made an outstanding contribution to the quality and appearance of the environment. They have both been beautifully designed and we are delighted that they have been recognised on the national stage.”
