Plaice are celebrating for the second time this year, after winning the Design Category Award at the recent Suffolk Coastal Quality of Place Awards, held at East Suffolk House, Riduna Park, Melton, Suffolk.

The awards, organised by Suffolk Coastal District Council recognises and encourages an interest in the quality of the built and natural environment of the district and promotes an awareness of the need for high standards in all forms of design, including Building Conservation, Design, Nature & Landscape.

The winning entry, an alteration and extension to a 1960’s property in Sandy Lane, Woodbridge is a bold and dramatic scheme, which set out to completely overhaul the existing property, almost doubling its footprint.

The awards were presented by Suffolk Coastal Chairman, Councillor Chris Blundell with Bronze plaques presented to each Winner. The Judges said: 

“This scheme epitomises what the Quality of Place awards are all about. Here is an ordinary house, in an ordinary area, radically transformed into visual magic by the simple but beautiful use of shape and form, the clever exploitation of structure, views, and light, and the restrained application of colour, all in a way which is readily recognisable, and achievable, by others, in this age of increasing individuality and visual awareness. May we see many more examples of such individual enterprise.”
