Calderpeel Architects has been crowned as the region’s top residential architect. The practice took home the Architect of the Year title at the North West Residential Property Awards held last night (January 26) at Lancashire County Cricket Club.
The awards, organised by North West Business Insider, celebrate the best of the region’s housebuilders and residential property community.
The judges hailed Calderpeel’s attention to the landscape and admired its wealth of "appropriate beautifully designed" schemes of varying sizes.
Harry Calder, Chairman of Calderpeel, said: “We’re immensely proud of the work we do in the residential sector. High-end residential and superhome projects have been the bedrock of our business for the last 25 years. It’s great to have the quality developments we’re producing recognised by such a heavyweight judging panel.”
Among the Calderpeel projects that swayed the judges were Riverside Place, a stunning development of Georgian-inspired townhouses in Knutsford designed on behalf of Hillcrest Homes, and Westbrook Villas, an innovative design for 12 new homes in Chorlton which retained the historic façade of the former Chortlon Masonic Lodge.
