Borsuk is senior partner at London based architect Pollard Thomas Edwards, which is well known for its work in housing, mixed use development and regeneration. She was named Woman Architect of the Year by architecture magazine the Architects’ Journal in 2015. Borsuk follows architect Robert Adam in taking the chair’s role on the judging panel for the British Homes Awards.
The British Homes Awards 2017 recognise the talent, effort and innovation of architects, designers, housebuilders, affordable housing providers and developers working across the UK residential property sector. Award categories span the range of residential development activity in the UK today, from historic restoration to large scale mixed use.
The awards presentation includes the Manser Medal, the prestigious prize for quality in one-off house design, which is named after the inaugural chair of the British Homes Awards judging panel, the late architect Michael Manser. The awards are also this year putting the spotlight on the design of new homes for garden cities, with a concept competition for architects.
The judging panel draws on broad expertise from both design and development. Borsuk will be joined by a judging panel of eminent figures including Ken Trew, senior projects director at developer Argent, Andy von Bradsky, chairman of industry improvement network the Housing Forum, and Lynne Sullivan, chair of sustainable housing group the Good Homes Alliance and a former government advisor.
