Coventry Design Awards 2001

Coventry Design Awards are held every two years to reward design excellence in the city. The awards are a locally based initiative which give the people of Coventry an opportunity to nominate good examples of design that make a significant contribution to the environment of the city.

A key aim is to raise the profile of urban design as a method of creating a high quality environment whilst recognising that good quality and design can help make a better, more positive city for everyone to enjoy.


The programme kicked off in October with a launch in the Coventry Evening Telegraph and the distribution of leaflets around the city.

A six week period followed where people were invited to nominate good examples of design in the following categories:

1   New Buildings
House, factory, shop, school

2  Renovation
An improvement to an existing building

3  Environmental Improvement
Park, woodland, public squares and highway schemes

4  Accessibility
Schemes that improve access for disabled groups

5  Lighting
External lighting of a building, street lighting and lighting of spaces

6  Household Extension
A new conservatory, kitchen, extension etc

To qualify all entries had to be located within the City Council boundary and to have been completed between October 1999 and October 2001. The closing date for nominations was Friday 12 October 2001.


Over 50 nominations were received under the six award categories.

The nominations were judged by a panel consisting of local architects, residents, councillors, designers and other interest groups within the city.

The results were announced at the awards ceremony on 7 December 2001 and published in the Coventry Evening Telegraph, and here on CWN.


Information about future awards will be posted on this website.
