Housing Design Awards 2013

The Housing Design Awards 2013 are open for entries. The Awards are open to housing schemes with 4 or more dwellings in England for both Projects (with detailed planning permission) and Completed schemes.

The deadline for entries is 4th March 2013. The awards ceremony is scheduled for 4th July in central London.

· The Housing Design Awards, highlighted in the Government’s Housing Strategy as to how it will champion design and innovation during this Parliament, are back for a 65th year.
· A multidisciplinary team of 16 judges undertakes a desktop review before visiting their shortlist of 30+ schemes, considering everything from a development’s build quality to the resident experience to the role of the local authority.
· To reflect the growing awareness of how public realm can make or break a scheme, the Landscape Institute has joined the Awards for 2013, bringing expertise in landscape architecture to the judging process.
· Entries are made online and scheme details and images are collated in a compendium of entries that is used internally at sponsoring partners, such as the Homes and Communities Agency and the GLA, to track design patterns in schemes built with their grant support or on their land.
