Hayfield Green in the West Oxfordshire village of Stanton Harcourt has made the shortlist for the British Homes Awards 2021. The meticulous £25m redevelopment of the former RAF Stanton Harcourt airfield is a finalist in the Development of the Year (20-100 units) category.
This is the first time the five-star housebuilder has been shortlisted for the British Homes Awards, which honour every aspect of housebuilding from architectural and interior design through to build quality and innovation, from one-off houses to major developments. The winners will be revealed on 12th November at a prestigious ceremony at The Biltmore Mayfair.
Andy Morris, Managing Director for Hayfield said: “Hayfield Green is a highly sensitive and completely unique 21-acre redevelopment project. We are delighted it has made the shortlist for the 2021 British Homes Awards.
“RAF Stanton Harcourt ceased to be used as an airfield in 1946 and a number of the WWII buildings of special interest fell into a poor state of repair. Over a complex two-year build programme, Hayfield has immortalised the historic airfield, created 66 much-needed mix tenure homes and opened up the site for locals and those travelling from further afield to appreciate its place in history.”
The judging panel for the British Homes Awards is composed of industry experts who look for entries that demonstrate innovation in design and delivery, originality and how a design brief has benefited the community or individual. The winning projects are featured across media publisher Haymarket’s extensive built environment portfolio, including World Architecture News, World Interiors News and Planning magazine.
Alison Carter, Editor in Chief for World Architecture News said: “The construction industry is booming after the Covid induced pause and the enthusiasm of companies to showcase their work via this year's British Homes Awards has been apparent in the strong shortlist we've seen. All the categories proved popular and provided an extensive range of excellent entries for the judges to reflect on. I am also delighted that we will be able to meet in person later on this year and celebrate the deserving winners.”
Solihull-headquartered Hayfield will deliver over 300 luxury homes across middle England this year, to achieve a 2021 turnover figure well in excess of £100m. Its live development portfolio comprises Hayfield Green in West Oxfordshire; Hayfield Place and Hayfield Gate, which are both within Central Bedfordshire; Hayfield Avenue in Cambridgeshire; Hayfield Wood in Wiltshire; and Hayfield Oaks and Hayfield Walk, which are both in Buckinghamshire.
Hayfield won Gold and Bronze accolades at the 2020 WhatHouse? Awards and has also received three Pride in the Job NHBC Awards.
