Best Development- Lawnfield Close, Newcastle

This award recognises developments that provide desirable and sustainable places to live, improving the lives of people within the community. Lawnfield Close, Newcastle is an innovative older people’s housing scheme located within Newcastle at the base of Slieve Donard an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The need for social housing in the area was significantly met with the accommodation of 42 individuals in the 14 apartments and incorporated a design to meet the complex needs of 2 specific families.

The design of the development has carefully considered the wider natural context of the area and maximises unspoilt views of the Mourne Mountains, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
