Young Architect of the Year – Shortlisted

Young Architect of the Year

We are absolutely thrilled to have been shortlisted for 'Young Architect of the Year' at the Building Design Architect of the Year Awards 2022.

"The Young Architect of the Year Awards is organised by Building Design to recognise and reward the UK's most promising new architects or practices".

Building Design

These prestigious awards, reward architects for a consistent body of work rather than just one-off projects. So we are extra especially delighted that we have been nominated! If you would like to see the work that got us nominated for this award, please head over to our projects section.

One of our projects which was referenced by Building Design was North Road.

"North Road is the conversion and extension of an existing bungalow into a modern four-bedroom home. This project brings together a range of different design ideas which required working within the parameters of the existing structure and site boundary.

The new building was developed almost entirely using virtual reality technology. The client was able to wander through the space in realtime, making suggestions and observations long before the project was submitted to planning. Moving walls, changing materials and creating new moments in the design was achievable within minutes."

Residential Property of the Year East Midlands – Shortlisted

We are thrilled that our ‘Feel Good’ project has been shortlisted for the ‘Residential Property of the Year’ in the Constructing Excellence East Midlands Awards 2022

This prestigious award recognises architectural developments that provide a desirable and sustainable place to live. 

Our Feel Good project is a bespoke, residential architectural project on an existing property based in Nottinghamshire. The home had an outdated design, so we extended the property and modified internal and external spaces to give it a new lease of life. 

In collaboration with the clients, we designed a modern extension with floor to ceiling glazing. A sequence of terraces and roof gardens were created so that the homeowners could enjoy the various external spaces at different times of day. The new design included many sustainable benefits, latest technologies and positive improvements to the surrounding area. 

We are very excited to be shortlisted for this award and are looking forward to the awards dinner which is being held at the Athena in Leicester on Thursday 9th June 2022.

Design Haus named ‘Architects of the Year’

Design Haus was named ‘Architects of the Year’ at East Midlands Business Link’s 2020 Bricks Awards.

This annual awards ceremony recognises development projects and people in commercial and public building within the region. Despite government guidelines making an in-person event impossible, the ceremony was held as an online Zoom event, bringing further innovation to the region’s construction industry.

Bricks is an opportunity to celebrate success in the industry, and Design Haus was up against stiff competition from Falkner Browns and Allan Joyce Architects. It is a great achievement to have been nominated and recognised alongside such esteemed practices, and an honour to receive this prestigious award.

To have our innovative architectural design approach recognised by the judges and being named ‘Architects of the Year’ is wonderful. I’d like to extend my thanks to East Midlands Business Link for this award and the opportunity to celebrate the region’s best.
