Rasa Akelyte-Rashid, Design Awards Ambassador at the Chiltern Society said
“ We are proud to organise the Chilterns Buildings Design Awards in partnership with the Chilterns Conservation Board. The purpose of this highly respected award is to encourage the highest possible quality of building design to conserve and enhance the character and beauty of the Chilterns.”
Dr Matt Thomson, Head of Planning at the Chilterns Conservation Board said
“The Chilterns Conservation Board and the Chiltern Society run the Buildings Design Awards competition every two years to encourage and recognise great examples of design and construction based on the principles in the Chilterns Buildings Design Guide. In previous years, the Awards have focused on celebrating design and construction that positively contributes to the distinctive character of the Chiltern Hills’ environment, with a nod towards sustainable construction. This year, with increased global awareness of climate change, and the impact this is having on the nature of the environment, and particularly on biodiversity, we want to recognise designs that make a powerful contribution to mitigating and/or adapting to climate change, as well as promoting the local distinctiveness.
We want to inspire builders, designers, and people in the community to be part of the Chiltern’s Buildings Design Awards and stimulate them to celebrate and promote outstanding examples of their winning sustainable building work across the Chilterns.”
The categories for this year’s awards are:
- Best ‘Green’ Building
- Best ‘Modern’ Building
- Best ‘Traditional’ Building
This is a great opportunity to showcase a successful building project. Entries are welcome from architects, builders, planners and the public.
The deadline for submissions for the 2021 awards is 31st July.
The awards will be presented in September 2021 at the Chiltern’s Buildings Design Awards ceremony.
