Signia’s sought after development at the Cloisters in Stanmore was highly commended in the latest London awards to honour the capital’s housing developers.
The Cloisters is an exclusive gated community of just ten magnificent detached houses perfectly positioned high on Stanmore Hill, adjacent to Stanmore Country Park which affords owners stunning panoramic views across London. It was highly commended in the fiercely competitive Best Small new Housing Development Category of the regional LABC (Local Authority Building Control) Building Excellence Awards.
Award finalists, made up of London-based and national construction industry firms, as well as the local authority building control staff from the London boroughs, were among more than 400 attendees at the awards dinner. LABC Director of Network Development Marie Buckley hosted the awards, which celebrate the design and construction teams that, having tussled with technical issues and difficult sites, found innovative and creative solutions.
Sam Patel, Founder of Signia, said “The Cloisters is, quite simply, a jewel in the crown of north-west London. It’s a very rare opportunity to enjoy contemporary luxury living in a superb picturesque setting, and a development that everyone at Signia Living is incredibly proud to have been involved in creating.
“To find homes in London that feature such a healthy mix of natural splendour and cosmopolitan living is unusual; The Cloisters has both in abundance and families who come and live here will create memories to last a lifetime. To be highly commended in what was a fiercely contested category in these awards is recognition of all the hard work which has gone into making The Cloisters unique.”
Homes at The Cloisters are sumptuous five-bedroom family properties set over two or three floors. Each home enjoys open plan kitchen/family space alongside a separate reception room and a dining room. There is also a study and a media room in each home as well as gardens to the front and rear plus an integrated double garage.
There were 15 winning and 8 highly commended projects and individuals who received their trophies and certificates from representatives of LABC sponsors at the awards evening.
Tim Gilhooly, President of London District Surveyors’ Association, said “This is one of building control’s highlights of the year. The awards are an opportunity for us to celebrate the best of construction in London, not just the mega projects of which there are many, but smaller schemes, individual extensions and homes.”
