The Nook is a children’s hospice run by East Anglian Children’s Hospices (each) which was opened last year by HRH the Duchess of Cambridge.

Crown Place in St Stephens Street in Norwich features a gym as well as built-in appliances and a cinema room.

Head judge for East of England, Jonathan Nelson, said: “The built environment is an integral part of the UK economy but also makes a positive impact on our everyday lives.

“In these challenging times, it is warming to reflect on these winning projects, and how they are not only a demonstration of the breadth of talent within the profession, but showcase how buildings can make towns and cities across the country more inclusive and deliver communities which people can be proud of.”
