The judging panel includes Julia Barfield, director of Marks Barfield; Yuli Cadney-Toh, architect director of BDP Bristol; Anisha Jogani, Placemaking team leader of Croydon Council; Kathy MacEwen, town planner; and Hugh Pearman, editor of the RIBA Journal.
As development manager, igloo Community Builders helped Leathermarket CBS form a vision and facilitated the transformation of the former garage site into high quality and genuinely affordable homes.
