Eight Vale buildings have been praised at the 2012 Design Awards.
The building projects praised by the Aylesbury Vale District Council Design Award judges were as follows:
The New Inn visitor centre at Stowe Landscape Gardens
Rammamere, a contemporary house near Stockgrove
Beam Cottage at Cuddington
The Old Brewery House at Ivinghoe
Buckmaster Farm in Horton
Cartref Barn in Grendon Underwood
The Granary in Chearsley
The Serpentine in Aylesbury
The design awards were started to encourage improved design and architecture in the district, with architects, builders and residents invited to submit entries to the awards says the district council whose judging panel visited each shortlisted site.
Councillor Sue Polhill, responsible for planned development, design and conservation at the authority, said: “It was very difficult to pick the winners this year as the entries were fantastic from all over the area.
“I’m so pleased to see so many developers and residents taking the care and effort to design things well for the area.
“These buildings really are something to be proud of.”
