The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Stirling Prize Awards took place on Tuesday 8 October at London’s iconic Roundhouse to celebrate the very best of new British architecture. The Social Housing Project of 105 high energy-efficient homes in Goldsmith Street Norwich, designed by Mikhail Riches to Passivhaus standards for Norwich City Council won the UK’s highest architectural accolade for the best new building 2019. Arnold van Huet managing director of Crest would like to congratulate Mikhail Riches on winning this prestigious award. The Crest team were delighted to provide expert advice on this innovative project. The partnership created high quality facing bricks and a bespoke roofing system that flows without interruption continuously from eave to ridge, for the mix of 45 houses and 60 flats on this exciting development.
