Khoury Architects’ wins two RIBA Awards for Chattock Gardens in Solihull
Khoury Architects’ exceptional design and delivery of Chattock Gardens in Solihull won two RIBA Awards on Thursday 28th April 2016 in Birmingham. The development won a RIBA West Midlands Regional Award and Andrew Khoury won Project Architect of the Year.
Chattock Gardens consists of two contemporary houses built on a sensitive backland site, with the majority of accommodation being subterranean and only modest single storey pavilions visible at ground level. The jury was particularly impressed by the way in which the two houses embraced the very different personal tastes of each of the occupiers without detracting from the quality of the architecture.
Andrew Khoury was delighted to be announced as Project Architect of the Year which he won thanks to the positive relationship he developed with the client, developer and contractor – all one entity. His determination and their enthusiasm carried the scheme through a tricky planning process and planning approval was finally achieved. The resultant highly accomplished scheme links single and double height spaces with external courtyards and is finished to an exceptionally high standard with refined and restrained detailing.
