Lucy Developments is delighted that its recently-completed Hawthorne House in Oxford has been recognised by the Oxford Preservation Trust (OPT) in their 2017 Awards. The apartment building – that replaces a disused residential care home – won a certificate in the ‘New Building’ category of the prestigious awards against  extremely stiff competition from much larger, more expensive projects.  Hawthorn House was designed by Paul Southouse Architects and the builders were Cooper Construction.

Ian Ashcroft, Director of Lucy Real Estate said ‘ The whole team are delighted that the Oxford Preservation Trust like Hawthorn House as much as we do.  We are extremely proud of this development. It is a high quality, modern, energy-efficient design, that makes the best use of this brownfield site’s aspect and orientation. I’m sure its residents will also appreciate its open and spacious interior design.’

The Oxford Preservation Trust is a charity that began in 1927 and has been looking after Oxford ever since, conserving the best of the old, and encouraging the best of the new. Its awards – that have been running for 40 years – attract entries of the highest standard and quality, each making their own contribution to the great city of Oxford.
