Wandsworth Design Awards launched

Wandsworth Council has launched its annual competition to find the borough’s best designed buildings.

Nominations are now open for the boroughs favourite new buildings and “those that make a positive contribution to the local environment”.

Entries need to have innovative, high-quality designs and to have been completed since January 1, 2013.

The aim of the competition is to recognise and promote new buildings and spaces that demonstrate excellence in sustainable design and construction and encourage architects, developers and house builders to highlight their ‘green’ credentials.

Similarly the competition incorporates the Wandsworth Access Awards which aims to encourage architects and builders to come up with innovative, intelligent and inclusive designs that fully meet the needs of people with disabilities.

The winners will be selected by a panel of judges comprising councillors, including the borough’s design and heritage champions, local architects, representatives of the Wandsworth Design Review Panel, local amenity societies and the Wandsworth Access Association.

An awards ceremony will be held in 2016.
