The Chiswick House Cafe, the Hillside Hub and Langford Primary School have all won Civic Trust Awards.
Caruso St John’s Chiswick House Cafe (pictured left) opened in 2011 to critical and local acclaim, and provides an upmarket cafe experience, with great views of Chiswick House and its gardens.
The Hillside Hub in Stonebridge Park (pictured right) was designed by Edward Cullinan Architects for REAL, part of Rydon Homes, and is a mixed use development with homes and a health centre. It has also been critically acclaimed, and broadly welcomed by locals.
The Hilside Hub won the Special Award for Community Impact & Engagement.
The Courtyard, at Langford Primary School (left), designed by Surface to Air architects, also won an Award. The project involved the refurbishment of a Grade II listed Victorian former school building with a modern glass and steel extension.
The Courtyard is used by children who have statements of special educational needs for social, emotional and behavioural difficulties and as a primary pupil referral. The £750,000 building, which opened to pupils in June last year, uses light, curved walls, muted colours, and high quality natural materials, like wood, to create a calm environment.
The Civic Trust Awards is an independent built environment awards scheme established in 1959 to recognise the very best in architecture, design, planning, landscape and public art. Successful projects must also be culturally, socially or economically beneficial, and make an outstanding contribution to the quality and appearance of the built environment.
