We are delighted to announce that Howe Farm won the Housing Exterior Surface Category, as well as the Supreme Award at the Surface Design Awards 2016.
The judges’ comments about the project: “…The judges praised the accomplished use of material that enhanced the building in its setting, describing the treatment of the roof as artful and with a number of judges proclaiming ‘I want to live there’.”
32 projects were named as finalists for the 2016 awards with 40% being from outside the UK covering an extensive 12 countries. With admissions including private residencies, hospitals, restaurants, and even a sewage works the judging panel had a difficult task in selecting the finalists and winners of each category. The range of exciting and creative projects inspired an animated debate on the virtues of each project from the panel with projects described as ‘stand out’, ‘modern’, ‘unusual’ and ‘strong’.
