The scheme, which has planning permission, but is not yet on site, was designed for Brent Council by Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands.
It is a break from the high rise homes dotted around South Kilburn and is intent on recreating the old historic pattern that was blitzed away to build the 1960's estate. It will include flats with private and communal gardens, a modern 'mews' type space at the rear and will be no more than five storeys in height.
George Crane, Lead Member for Regeneration and Major Projects said: "We are delighted that this scheme has received national recognition. In acting as master developer for South Kilburn the council is determined to work with the highest calibre architects possible to ensure that we replace the old high rise blocks with excellent new housing."
The development is expected to be completed around spring 2012.
The prestigious Government run award scheme announced its 14 winners on July 14. It has been running since 1947, and is supported by the NHBC, HBF and HCA, among others.
