Bluebell House, at 38a Waldemar Avenue, was designed by Burd Haward Architects. The judges felt that the new house on backland in Waldemar Avenue showed a very high standard of design and was a fine example of what can be done with difficult sites like this with narrow access. The design manages to overcome daylighting, overlooking and mature trees, resulting in a lovely family house, internally and externally.
The refurbishment of Greenford Hall in Ruislip Road by Ealing Council was highly commended, with judges saying that the 1950s civic centre is now a “splendid asset for the community”.
The council’s work on Southall Manor House was commended.
The other properties shortlisted for awards were as follows: Connelly Dell, Hanwell; Bramley Gardens and the Log Cabin, Northfield Avenue, W13; Westside Youth Centre, W13; The Penthouse, Carlton Road, W13 and 46c Woodhurst Rd W3.
The Societies 2012 awards were judged by local architects Franklyn Nevard and Tom Jestico and landscape architect Mark Szutenberg.
