Winners of the 2015 Awards were Daniel Hall, the Farnham Pottery, The Forge in Upper Church Lane and Mr Simms Olde Sweet Shoppe.

The finalists for this year’s new Architecture & Design Awards are:

Heron Court, Ford Lane

Medici Centre, Weydon School

Hawthorn Lodge, Long Bridge

Houses at Bourne Mill, Guildford Road

Oast House, 10 Green Lane

The purpose of the Awards is to encourage and stimulate architects, developers and contractors to undertake the highest level of design and workmanship in new buildings, and in preserving and improving existing ones.

Nominations were for a contemporary new build, or an improvement /modernisation, which should be sympathetic to the existing building and integrate well with its surroundings. The judges’ appraisal of the nominated buildings is based on good design for their location, whether they fulfil their purpose and, ideally are environmentally sustainable.
