A great piece in the EDP as part of their coverage of the Festival of Architecture in Norwich and Norfolk lists the county’s top-ten architectural ‘landmarks’, ancient and modern. We were pleased to see our project for Abel homes, Hus22, keeping very good company in the modern section. The description says the houses show ‘that good design and the green agenda are a saleable commodity that is accepted and in demand by the public…They are well executed and create a very good living environment’.
The EDP’s full list of Norfolk’s ‘Best Modern Buildings’ is as follows:
– EDP headquarters (Prospect House (Yates Cook & Derbyshire, 1969)
– Splash, Sheringham (Will Alsop, 1988)
– Hus22 Drayton (Lucas Hickman Smith, 2010)
