Fenland District Council, Building Design Awards. Winner Best new dwelling Scheme, 67a Elwyn Rd March, Mrs K Hubbard.

Archant

Owner: Mrs K Hubbard. Designer: KL Elener Architectural Design.

THE judging panel felt that this home was designed to the highest standards, incorporating a mix of design features which make it unique.

Materials used in the construction are to a very high standard and carefully reflect materials used in the immediate area. The dwelling blends well with adjoining development.

The home is in a prominent location set between two fine houses.

Nominee and architect Ken Elener said: “The client’s desire was to build a home that would both enhance the street scene and be of sufficient quality to not be dwarfed by the adjacent 69 Elwyn Road, regarded as one of the finest homes in the town.

“We feel this has been achieved by the client’s eye for detail and her instance on quality.

“I feel the dwelling sits comfortably in its surroundings and enhances the street scene and will do for a long while.”

The proposal was highly commended at the 2010 awards.
