Like the eight winners in the completed projects category of this year’s Housing Design Awards, announced yesterday, the 10 designs to triumph in the unbuilt schemes category all demonstrate imaginative ways to regenerate brownfield sites.

The terraced housing at Tanner Street in Barking, east London, by Peter Barber Architects, is just such a development. At Point Pleasant, in an industrial area of south-west London, PCKO Architects has created 128 apartments and nine commercial spaces fronted by a screen wall. For Royal William Yard in Plymouth, the listed Royal Naval depot is being converted into 130 flats with gallery and restaurant by Acanthus Ferguson Mann.
