crusader wins 2023 housing design award for regeneration

shedkm have taken home the 2023 housing design award for regeneration with the renovation of Crusader mill in Manchester.

The site, part of Manchester’s then thriving textile industry, dates from the late 1840s and included a number of Listed mill buildings. Today it’s home to high-quality modern apartments and a green, communal courtyard space.

shedkm’s work is rooted in regeneration. Our distinctive approach results in bold, engaging schemes which are economically and socially transformative. Find out more about our regeneration schemes in Manchester here.

The Housing Design Awards launched in 1948 to reward better municipal post-war rebuilding, then opened up to market sale homes in 1960. They are the only awards promoted by all five major professional institutions – RICS, RIBA, RTPI, Landscape Institute and Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists and their purpose is to showcase the best housing ideas to the government and industry.

We have a long-standing history with the Housing Design Awards – previously winning 15 various awards since 1999 – for Port Loop, Inholm, New Islington, Botanic, Tribeca, Preston Point and Collegiate. Last year we won the overall ‘Winner of Winners’ award with Kampus, an award we also previously picked up for Chimney Pot Park in 2008.  

Congratulations to the whole collaborative team for this important recognition!
