The Wood House in Wymondham is the latest Lucas Hickman Smith to receive recognition for quality design, following awards earlier in the year for the Pennoyer Centre, the Bridewell Museum and Hus22 (by the RICS, the Norwich Society and Broadland Council respectively).
The project was announced today as the only project to receive a full South Norfolk Design Award this year, recognising the contemporary yet sympathetic contribution it makes to the streetscape in the Conservation Area. Cllr Colin Foulger, chair of the judging panel explained its unanimous decision:
‘We were impressed with the way in which the design responded to its site using traditional forms and materials without copying the historic architectural details of neighbouring buildings but introducing a distinctive 21st century contemporary addition to the street scene…it is a wonderful example of great design.’
Commendations were awarded to LSI Architects’ new classroom building at Langley School and a new playground and school garden at Thurton Primary School designed by David Yates, Landscape Architect at Norfolk County Council.
