A retirement housing developer has received six nominations at this year’s prestigious Housing Design Awards.
PegasusLife, which had four nominations and yielded two wins at last year’s awards, has an innovative approach to developing retirement homes and has worked in partnership with award-winning architects.
Design director John Nordon said:
“We’re very proud to have so many projects shortlisted. It’s a huge achievement for us as well as our design partners, who are all leaders in their field.
“Our aim is to create homes that make residents feel proud, connect with the landscape and fabric of each and every location and make a positive impact on the local community. This unique approach challenges conventional ideas on retirement living and we are delighted that our efforts are being recognised.”
All of the developments are shortlisted within the Project Schemes section of the awards.
Hampstead Green Place in London is designed by the multi-award winning architect firm Duggan Morris and boasts stunning views of the capital’s iconic skyline from the apartments. Wildernesse House in Sevenoaks, also designed by Duggan Morris, also made the shortlist.
