This year’s Stirling Prize winner – the Accordia housing development in Cambridge – features some timber post and beam balconies with timber cladding.

The top achitectural prize, awarded by the Royal Institute for British Architects (RIBA), was awarded to a housing scheme for the first time.

Accordia, which was highly commended in Wood Awards last year, has been designed by Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios, Alison Brooks Architects and Macreanor Lavington, with Countryside Properties completing the first phase of the scheme and Redeham Homes completing the development.
