Electricity House takes home 'Best Refurbishment Project' at the 2016 Housebuilder Awards

Bristol's Electricity House has been awarded 'Best Refurbishment Project' at the prestigious Housebuilder Awards, held in London on the 3rd November 2016.

This award recognises the commitment to the restoration of the Grade-II listed building, whilst protecting its integrity. 

Originally designed by acclaimed architect Sir Gilbert Scott in the 1930's, the Art Deco inspired Electricity House is an integral part of Bristol. After decades of neglect, it was restored to its former glory by housebuilders Crest Nicholson & HGP Architects, who innovatively designed this iconic building to incorporate contemporary features for modern living.

Crest Nicholson South West’s Sales and Marketing Director, Sandra Dixon commented on HGP's contribution to the award winning project.

'Our architects worked particularly hard to restore some invaluable features such as the grand front door on the bullnose of the façade. Inspired by London’s Art Deco hotels, the marble terrazzo floor in the foyer was also painstakingly re-created by master craftsmen. This award recognises the hard work of all those who helped us reinstate Electricity House.'
