URBANE Wins prestigious preservation award.

Preservation award for URBANE

A few years ago the URBANE site was a rather untidy unused pub in need of a significant face lift.  With accommodation highly sought after in Oxford City centre, Robin Swailes has transformed the building into 6 luxury short let apartments.  The attention to detail both inside and out has been recognised by the Oxford Preservation Trust with an award.  Robin loves Oxford and one key thread that runs through his 30 year design and development of local buildings has been the attention to the history of the buildings and the City.
