A leading architectural practice in Huddersfield has been shortlisted for the Insider North West Residential Property Awards 2021.

Fibre Architects, based in Edgerton, has been shortlisted for the “Small Housing Development of the Year” category along with six other developments in the North West Region.

The awards are due to take place on July 15 at Manchester Central. This year’s event is set to be a “celebration of the strength and resilience” of the sector despite the recent challenges of Covid-19.

Fibre’s project, Williamson Gardens, is a small development of six high-quality affordable homes, which were designed and built on a brownfield site in Stockport. Their modern take on a former industrial site boasts communal gardens, dedicated individual cycle storage and a cantilevered canopy running at the front of each home, protecting front entrances. 

Design director Michael Owens said: “We’re delighted to be recognised in a competitive category at these awards.

“We’re really proud of what we have achieved with Williamson Gardens, transforming a former industrial site into high-quality affordable homes which were all sold on completion.”
