Two developments in Maidstone have been named as among the best examples of architecture in Kent.
The finalists of the Kent Design and Development Awards have been announced, with Rosemary Gardens in Park Wood and Hill House in Maidstone among the winners.
The awards, jointly organised and sponsored by DHA Planning, Kent County Council and Ward Homes, celebrate the best new buildings and developments across Kent over the past two years.
Rosemary Gardens, a development of 18 one- and two-bedroom bungalows incorporating contemporary design and environmentally friendly features, was named winner in the Major Residential category, while Hill House won the Minor Residential category.
Maidstone Museum's new East Wing was also Highly Commended in the Community Public Buildings category.
KCC leader Paul Carter said: “Good design and quality developments are essential if we are to continue to maximise on the attractiveness and uniqueness of Kent. The calibre of entries was extremely high this year. The quality and skill that went into these buildings and developments is truly outstanding, and they all deserve to be celebrated."
