Icknield Port Loop has been nominated for a Urban Design Group Award 2013!

Icknield Port Loop has been identified as a development opportunity for a number of years. There had been a number of masterplans done for the site including a previous scheme by Glenn Howells Architects for the developer Isis in 2007 and a plan developed as part of draft planning policy by the city council. The site was also identified as a growth node and a Sustainable Urban Neighbourhood in a number of studies as well as in the emerging LDF.


We are very happy to know that the shed has been transformed into a beautiful piece of art by artist Simon Periton.

We are really pleased to have been shortlisted for the 3rd time in 4 years for the Urban Design Practice Award 2015.
