DWA Architects double winner at Pinders awards
DWA Architects has won two awards in the Pinders Healthcare and Design Awards, regarded as one of the leading award competitions in the sector.
The company won both award categories it was shortlisted for, in a glittering ceremony in London presented by world cup winner Sir Geoff Hurst.
DWA Architects had already won nine Pinders Awards since 2006 for projects across the country.
Fernhill House, located in Worcester and designed for Majesticare, won the best new care home for the elderly award and Swan Court in Birmingham, for Precious Homes, won the best regeneration award.
Commenting on the double award win, David Ward, Managing Director of DWA Architects said: “We are naturally thrilled to win both awards and for our high quality designs to be recognised by the judges in these national awards. It builds on the strong track record and reputation for quality in the care sector we have built up over the last 30 years.”
In the elderly care home category, Fernhill House, which opened last year, is a stunning 66-bed residential home. The £4.3 million facility features a replica pub, a private dining room, a cinema room, landscaped gardens and a hairdresser.
The Swan Court project transformed and re-developed an older person’s sheltered housing scheme into a three-tiered residential and supported living accommodation development. The scheme also includes a social enterprise cafe for younger people and adults, which is a central element of the design.
