Brentford Lock West Keelson Gardens shortlisted for the RIBA Neave Brown Award for Housing
Brentford Lock West Keelson Gardens has been shortlisted for the RIBA's Neave Brown Award for Housing.
This is the first year that the award has been given and is named in honour of the late Neave Brown (1929 – 2018). Neave Brown was a socially-motivated, modernist architect who was awarded the UK’s highest honour for architecture, the Royal Gold Medal for Architecture.
Brentford Lock West consists of the award-winning Block E and Block F (Keelson Gardens) and creates a sustainable people centred community, promoting walking and cycling through the urban form and a network of shared surface streets. A rich variety of public spaces are all designed to promote social interaction while providing quiet places for residents to relax and reconnect with nature.
RIBA judges commented that 'overall, this is a high quality work of architecture, landscaping and residential environment achieved for a modest budget.'
Winners will be announced at an awards ceremony in October.
