An eco-friendly council estate in Norwich has won this year’s prestigious RIBA Stirling Prize for Architecture. This is the first time that a social housing scheme has won the prize.

Award-winning Landscape Architects BBUK Studio selected Tobermore paving to create streets, pathways and communal areas.

Harriet Bourne Director at BBUK Landscape Architects commented, ‘’We are delighted with our specification of Tobermore’s paving for the hard-landscaping at Goldsmith Street. Their eco-friendly credentials made them the perfect choice for this innovative project.’’

The architects took inspiration from Victorian terraced houses, with streets created instead of apartment blocks. To encourage a community spirit, the back gardens of the central terraces share a secure play area for children and a walkway for communal gatherings runs through the middle of the estate.

Tobermore Owner/Managing Director David Henderson said, "Tobermore would like to congratulate Mikhail Riches Architects, Norwich City Council and BBUK Studio and for Goldsmith Street. Tobermore are incredibly proud to have been chosen as the paving supplier for this ground-breaking project.''
