Regent Lodge is a new build development of fourteen fully furnished, one bed and studio flats, aiming to solve issues around alcohol dependency in a homeless population through tailored support in an independent setting.

The Judges said:

Regent Lodge provides tailored support for issues around alcohol and substance dependency to the homeless population, allowing step changes in an independent setting for residents. The building refreshes and enhances the street scene whilst acknowledging its context within the immediate area. The project has been part-funded by the use of capital receipts from the Local Authority's right to buy disposals facilitating a measurable return on investment to the wider community
