In the second of Jim Stephenson’s films for The Architects’ Journal, we visit Goldsmith Street in Norwich, the first council housing project to be nominated for a Stirling Prize. UPDATE: I’m really pleased to say that Goldsmith Street won the Riba Stirling Prize, the first council housing project to do so. Proving that well designed, climate friendly social housing is possible. I hope this is the beginning of a shift towards more projects like this.
These environmentally friendly passivhaus-standard terraced houses were designed by Mikhail Riches and Cathy Hawley.
