Buschow Henley’s work in housing has been recognised for its high quality architecture that contributes positively to regeneration and identifies ways of encouraging sustainable development. Our reputation has grown through the production of innovative and sensitive solutions based on a common sense approach to offer residents “a healthy living experience”.
In 1999 we completed a 10,000m2 mixed-use residential scheme in Central London for the Manhattan Loft Corporation which received an RIBA Award for Architecture. In 2001 we won an international design competition to develop a 6.8 hectare site on St. Mary’s Island in Kent for a joint venture between SEEDA and Countryside Properties. In 2003 we won a Project Award at the Housing Design Awards for the York Place scheme. Today we are working with private developers and housing associations in London and the South East.
We understand the requirements of the Housing Corporation Scheme Development Standards, Life-Time Homes, Eco-homes, Secure by Design and other best practice. Our interest in people and community, sustainability and commonsense construction together makes for a unique approach.
Our work in housing has been recognised through a Housing Design Award, runners-up in the National Housing Design Awards, being short-listed for the Crown Estates RIBA Award for Conservation, the Guardian National Homebuilder Design Award, and a commendation for Blueprint Architecture Awards’ Best Residential Building of the Year.
