Housing design award for South Gardens homes in Elephant Park
Matthew Clark

Designed by Maccreanor Lavington Architects, South Gardens features 360 homes, ranging from three-storey townhouses to a 16-storey tower. Its 'clever mix of types of properties' and 'charming' landscaping impressed the RIBA judges, who said there was a 'strong place-making philosophy' to the design, which made the development feel 'like a small village'.
