This week dRMM was awarded the Building Design (BD) Housing Architect of the Year Award 2014-15 in recognition of the studio’s work on some of the most significant housing projects in the UK and overseas.
From dRMM’s early exploration into new housing typologies on multi award-winning No. One Centaur Street, to a focus on parity in social and for-sale units in Wansey Street, the studio has approached housing projects with particular ambitions. To create homes with identity characterised by light, views, efficiency of space, and intelligent use of contemporary materials. The studio’s efforts since 2008 to establish engineered timber as the sustainable construction material of choice has led to a large part of the project for the Elephant & Castle regeneration masterplan, Trafalgar Place, being developed as cross laminated timber.
dRMM’s housing portfolio includes social housing, mixed-tenure and private-sale schemes, all characterised by an ambition to create buildings that transform the city and inspire the citizen. We would like to thank and congratulate the dRMM team, our collaborators, and our clients.
