A HAMPSHIRE architecture firm has won a national award for its housing designs.

Winchester-based ADAM Architecture won the five-star award at the UK stage of the International Property Awards.

The firm took the Best Architecture Multiple Residence gong for 95 luxury homes it designed on the grounds of Bentley Priory, a Grade II listed mansion north of London.

The site was the Royal Air Force’s command headquarters during the Second World War and remained in military hands until 2008.

ADAM Architecture opened in Hyde Street in 1955 and has designed buildings all over the world.

Director Nigel Anderson said: “It is a great honour to receive this award.”
