The Guildford Society has announced the winners of its 2020 Design Awards.

With a virtual awards ceremony to be held later in the autumn, it says 2020 has been difficult year because of Covid 19, which delayed some buildings in Guildford from being completed.

The chairman of the society’s judging panel, Peter Coleman, said: “The judging panel was heartened by the high quality of the entries with a range of new developments and restoration projects happening in the borough.

“The submissions demonstrated a range of good quality contemporary architecture and sensitively designed extension works to existing buildings. All categories apart from one were well represented. Sadly, we had no commercial buildings that merited inclusion in the long list for judging.

“Our thanks to all who put forward properties for the Design Awards.”
