The Solent Design Awards are all about the encouragement of quality place-making; schemes that create special places, lift communities, create richer experiences… not just iconic buildings, but also the places in-between, the carrier spaces for our daily lives.
Hampshire, the Isle of Wight and the Solent area are wonderful places to live and the Solent Design Awards recognises new developments that add to, rather than detracting from the quality of life it offers, our experience of the workplace, and our appreciation of the environment we live in.
Following the very successful design awards held in 2010, 2012 and 2014, which attracted many varied and high quality entries, we are again encouraging applications for high quality schemes, including open space and public realm projects, town centre developments and neighbourhood renewal schemes, as well as high quality buildings.
Headline sponsor for the 2016 Solent Design Awards is Barratt David Wilson Homes in Southampton. Managing Director, Tim Hill said:
“It is our absolute pleasure to support the Solent Design Awards 2016, which share our values about creating quality places that have a positive impact on their surroundings. Our business is about so much more than building houses; it’s about creating communities for future generations and I for one am excited to see the projects put forward for this year’s awards.”
