Structural Timber Awards 2020

Structural Timber Awards – Lowfield achieves highly commended

Lowfield scooped up a Highly Commended award at the much anticipated ST Awards 2020, the event was held virtually in January 2021 due to coronavirus pandemic uncertainty. Lowfields achieved the award in the Social Housing category for their Marstons Hub project based in Ludlow, Shropshire. This was a great project to work on with main contractors SJ Roberts Construction. The guiding principle to this project has been to develop a language that will unify the historic fabric with the newer elements, whilst still retaining their own distinct character, this was where K4 Architects played an integral role in the project.
