A community-run nursery in Kentish Town has scooped a national architecture award, following in the footsteps of the Olympic Park.
Montpelier Nursery in Brecknock Road won a Royal Institute of British Architects award, the most prestigious of its kind in the UK, last Thursday for its eco-friendly building.
The building’s use of different materials was highly commended, as well as its storage for prams and front porch.
Camden developments were also honoured in the regional New London Awards’ shortlist, including a converted joinery workshop in Camden Town that featured on Channel 4 show Grand Designs.
Highgate Junior School, in Bishopswood Road, The Workshop in Royal College Street, Camden, and the Maiden Lane estate in King’s Cross have all been shortlisted for New London Awards, recognising the capital’s best developments.
The new-builds are all nominated for different honours. Highgate Junior School could win in the education sector, The Workshop is nominated in the homes category, while Maiden Lane estate is up for a residential gong.
A ceremony to decide the winners will be held on Thursday, July 11 at the Guildhall in the City.
