Judges thought that Barclay Firth had made some interesting uses of floorplans and light in the Beech Gardens project. The project consists of ten luxury detached family homes set within Willowfield Road in Halifax. Paying attention to the surroundings, Beech Gardens homes have views across the Calder Valley and were built using ethically sourced materials.
Beech Gardens was very personally designed by Architectural Designer, Michelle Gaffaney and her original concept was to create ‘luxury living whilst complimenting and supporting the environment around us.’ Company Director Neil Hamilton said: '...every site is unique and we believe that every home should be designed and built in a way that is sympathetic to its surroundings; and to the families who will choose it as their home for the future. Our research showed that Buyers look for flexible, low maintenance homes with space to work, live and grow a family and we have sought to meet those requirements....'
Beech Gardens provides many comfort features including; open plan living space, practical storage spaces, dual aspect living rooms via bi-fold doors leading to private gardens, en-suite shower rooms, dressing rooms, balconies with beautiful open views across the Calder Valley, top of the range kitchens and bathrooms, parking for several vehicles, electrical vehicle charging points, 100% low energy efficient lighting and Nest heating controls with smart phone integrated home options. All the latest technologies were considered.
Barclay Firth are very proud to have earned this award and would like to thank the judges for their consideration and comments. We would also like to thank every one of the team who worked so hard to deliver this project. Well done everyone!
