The judging panel, which included David Levitt of Levitt Bernstein and Richard Lavington of MacCreanor Lavington, described Tabard Square as a 'well resolved residential tower with several bonuses'.
The scheme, for Berkeley Homes and East Thames, is formed of five rectangular apartment blocks that interlock to form the tower. The interlocking, said the panel, has created terraces 'rather than just balconies at vertiginous heights'.
Design for Homes chief executive David Birbeck, who was also on the judging panel, said the 22-tower development which sits behind London Bridge Station was 'just stunning'.
The award, which is sponsored by Communities and Local Government, RIBA, Royal Town Planning Institute, NHBC and English Partnerships, was presented at Banqueting House yesterday.
