Daily Mail UK Property Award 2008
Best Architecture (single unit) awarded to new modern Classical villa in Cheltenham
The Best Architecture (single unit) award has been presented to a new modern Classical villa in Cheltenham at the Daily Mail UK Property Awards ceremony. This is the third national award for this property.
The property designed by Hugh Petter sits amidst a line of listed Regency villas and was built to replace a modern, undistinguished building within a Conservation area. It follows the model of a large villa and refers to common local features such as the deep Doric porch and rusticated ground floor. It was judged the best overall entry in this category and was given a five-star award.
Hugh Petter commented, "It is a great honour to receive this award. The commission provided an opportunity to replace a modern, undistinguished building within a Conservation Area, with one that endeavours to fuse more sympathetically with the surrounding Regency urban character whilst, at the same time, retaining our unmistakably modern and contemporary feel."
