RIBA recognises The Curve as an exemplar housing project

The Rayner Davies designed scheme on the corner of Gregory Street and Abbey Bridge, Nottingham has been recognised as an exemplar housing project by the RIBA East Midlands.

The recognition is part of the RIBAs commitment to identifying and promoting good design and takes into consideration durability, functionality, interiors, location, and the aesthetics of each development. As part of the judging process representatives from the RIBA, led by Mike Baulcombe, director at RIBA East Midlands, conducted a tour of The Curve.

As part of its RIBA recognition, The Curve’s exemplar housing design will be showcased to an audience of property professionals on 18 November 2021.

23 one and two bed apartments were built in a single block over two and four storeys. The external envelope curves around the site, enveloping a private central courtyard garden and residents parking.

The project was complex as it is within an area at risk of flooding and also within an area of archaeological constraints. Opposite the site, to the south, is The Priory Church of St Anthony which is a Grade II Listed Building and is bounded by a Grade II listed boundary wall. The site stands within the Lenton Priory Scheduled Monument Area. Archaeological investigation works took place prior to work starting on site.

Steve Rayner, partner at Rayner Davies, said: “This recognition by our peers is a testament to the quality of the work the team undertook here. We are proud that we were able to help make this project a reality.”
