Feilden+Mawson's project at MOD Caversfield (phase one) has been shortlisted for a Sunday Times British Homes Award 2014 in the 'Best Conversion' category. The redevelopment of this former RAF airbase is conceived as a sequence of semi-formal interrelated courtyard spaces, building on the original MOD layout but developing that further in a sympathetic manner to create additional spaces of quality and delight that are in keeping with the character and appearance of the historic site.

The scheme is a demonstration of Feilden+Mawson's ability to enhance the setting of listed buildings in a sensitive area with the addition of new residential houses and terraces in a contemporary yet complimentary style. Feilden+Mawson are delighted to have been shortlisted for this prestigious award. The winners will be announced at the award ceremony in September.
