Henley Homes were the winners of two awards for their new developments at the prestigious London Evening Standard New Homes Awards 2015, receiving the top prize for Best Small Development for The Annie McCall, in Stockwell SW4, and Highly Commended in the Best Conversion category, for Baylis Old School, Lollard Street, SE11.
The Annie McCall, which scooped Best Small Development, a Victorian Grade II Listed former Hospital on Jeffreys Road, Stockwell, SW4, has been carefully restored and redeveloped into 30 one and two bedroom apartments. A combination of new build and conversion, there are 13 one and two bedroom apartments set within the main Victorian building, a 1-bedroom new-build house known as The Lodge in the grounds of the development, and 7 apartments in a newly built block. Within the grounds of the development, Henley Homes have also constructed 16 artist studios, available for the use of members of a local art group, who previously occupied the site.
Highly commended for Best Conversion, Baylis Old School is a collection of 149 new homes, ranging in size from 1, 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes housed within the Grade II listed former Lilian Baylis School, on the borders of the Nine Elms regeneration area.
Tariq Usmani, CEO Henley Homes comments:
“As a development company, our focus is transforming brownfield land, former public buildings and old industrial sites into thriving, award-winning communities. We are very pleased to have been recognised for both The Annie McCall and Baylis Old School, two challenging conversion projects. We worked closely with the London Borough of Lambeth to deliver these new homes, helping to regenerate the local area.”
