South Western House, Southampton
Berkeley Homes (Hampshire) Ltd
Appointed by Berkeley Homes (Hampshire) Limited, DMWR Architects developed an outline residential scheme proposal through to Local Authority approval, tendering and £15m construction to final handover.
South Western House is an impressive grade II listed building with historical interest, converted in to ninety seven residential apartments and commercial units. Previously the building provided hotel accommodation for transatlantic passengers travelling on boats such as Titanic, at a time when sea crossings between Britain and America were fashionable.
The resulting high quality and well-designed restoration and conversion project was awarded a citation by the Best of British Homes in the category of Best Apartment Building.
