In the Multi-Residential category, the jury was searching for designs that developed an innovative address to challenges of economy and repetition – generally the two most important considerations in the developer-driven context of multi-residential housing. In this respect, the jury was unanimous in presenting Neometro the award for Harper Lane. The project was seen to offer a very clear resolution to the challenges presented by multi-residential development, no easy task given the constraints common to the typology. Harper Lane offers a basic but well-considered and, importantly, affordable response, where the building’s architectural elements both frame and form the interior.
