Looking after the environment is not just about green spaces, it’s also about designing sustainable places that are a joy to live in.
That’s what our Eastern region has achieved at be:Newhall, a stunning collection of contemporary homes in Essex which has won the overall Supreme Award in the Housing Design Awards.
Designed by Alison Brooks Architects, the contemporary development is a mix of houses and apartments near Harlow, featuring intriguing angles, a focus on space and light, and Scandinavian-style wooden cladding.
It follows the Royal Institute of British Architects East Building of the Year title which be:Newhall won last month – putting it in the running for the coveted RIBA Stirling Prize for the best building of the year to be announced on September 26th.
Linden Homes Eastern director and general manager Adrian Bohr said: “Winning two awards in a row shows what a stand-out collection of homes we’ve created at be:Newhall. We’re very proud of the prizes, but even prouder of building such a great place to live.”
Every piece of timber in your house is sustainably sourced timber. This means that new trees are planted to replace those cut down.
The blocks we use to build your home are the most energy efficient available and 80% of material within the blocks is recycled material - this saves heat loss from our homes and thus reduces CO2 emissions.
