Five stars for the Hyde Group at UK Property Awards
On 9 October 2015 The Hyde Group took away the top prize, in the Residential Development Category of the UK Property Awards, winning the 5 star award for the Best Residential Development in East Sussex, with its One Hove Park development.
One Hove Park makes good use of high quality materials, with a building design that was heavily influenced by local architecture, providing a contemporary and modern landmark building that is truly one of a kind. Inside, the building maximises the availability of daylight, creating a sense of space that complements the external architecture.
In building the development, Hyde relied heavily on local skills and talent. Bricks from Horsham were used to build it, while Hyde’s construction skills centre helped to get local people back into work. Careful consideration was given to the natural environment; award-winning landscape designer, Nicholas Dexter, helped Hyde to create a wildlife corridor between the two local parks, as well as an attractive communal garden for residents.
