Ten & Six: Mardol.

It is difficult to imagine a building in Shrewsbury better suited to house an Alice in Wonderland-themed champagne bar, or a Mad Hatter’s tea party for that matter. This is a high quality renovation with elegant paintwork bringing out the architectural qualities of this eye catching 17th century timber-framed building.

Award: New Build

Howard House, Havelock Road.

This self- build house was built to exacting quality and design standards, and also has met the energy and water efficiency aspects. It has been sympathetically designed in relation to its setting. The Howard House does all this and more. This modern designed home will be discretely hidden behind a brick wall which continues along the road joining one that exists today, ensuring that the streetscape is appropriate to this location. From the garden the house is very impressive; an open plan kitchen has a wall of glass-sliding doors with a full view of the garden. When complete this will certainly be an innovative design built with a lot of hard work and an eye to detail.

Howard House 20A Havelock Road:  Martin Howard
