Event description

Description

Join us for an exclusive opportunity to hear more about this RIBA Award winning building from the architect who designed it.

As part of this series of events showcasing 2019's Award winners, Mikhail Riches with Cathy Hawley Architects are giving a tour of Goldsmith Street, Norwich.

Goldsmith Street, Norwich is a scheme of 100% social housing– developed by Norwich city council working with Mikhail Riches Architects. It has been built in a very typical English Provincial City residential neighbourhood but is an exception. It communicates the best of enlightened modern domestic European architecture from the outset and captures the spirit of a very special place.

All homes are built to Passivhaus specification and borrow the neighbouring narrow street width of 14m between blocks. Careful design of windows minimises overlooking, and an asymmetric roof profile allows good sunlight and daylight into the streets. The result is a very dense development, but one that is in no way oppressive. The workmanship is of high quality as is the specification. This is an exemplary project.

This scheme has won a RIBA East Regional Award, RIBA East Sustainability Award, RIBA East Client of the Year, RIBA National Award and been shortlisted for the Stirling Prize 2019. Norwich City Council has also been shortlisted for RIBA Client of the Year 2019.

Thursday 24 October 2019 4.00pm – 5.30pm, registration from 3.45 pm
