We are delighted to announce that our William Muge and Snelgrove development for Dover District Council has won the RICS 2022 Awards in the housing category in the south-east region. This is great news for Dover as this flagship mixed tenure development sets a new benchmark for much needed high quality mixed-tenure development in the town centre that responds sensitively to the fantastic setting below the castle.
The jury commented on the benefits of new social housing on this key site and the sensitivity of the design approach in relation to the historic context below Dover castle.
Avanti Architects led the scheme design across three linked sites in Dover town centre from inception through to successful delivery on site with Jenner Contractors during challenging times in the midst of Covid.
