We had the honour of collecting Leicester Civic Society’s award for Winner of the Best New Build Award.


The award ‘New Build Complementing the Historic Built Environment’ was awarded to our Lumis project. The large residential scheme has redeveloped a former bus depot site to create a vibrant student development in Leicester’s city centre. Formed of four buildings centred around a stunning landscaped courtyard, maber provided architectural, interior and landscape design services. You can find out more about the scheme at our Lumis Project Page.


Also gaining recognition from the Civic Society was Leicester Castle Business School. The redevelopment of the Grade I Listed Leicester Castle, has sensitively transformed the 12th century former courts to a modern teaching facility for De Montfort University. The scheme was Highly Commended by the Civic Society.
