The Gold Award winner was Davaar House, Docking. Judges said: “Davaar House stood out for the panel, not only does it have high environmental sustainability credentials, but is also a clever and distinctive design that sits comfortably on its plot and takes advantage of the views afforded by the surrounding countryside.”

West Norfolk mayor Nick Daubney said: “The awards ceremony was a great evening, a suitable celebration of our push for better design and innovation and construction standards across our borough.”
