These are the "extremely impressive" east Suffolk buildings which have been recognised by community leaders for their design and character.
The winners of East Suffolk Council's Quality of Place Awards, which recognises the efforts of people in creating high-quality builds, have been announced.
Nominations were received last summer and the winners, judged on quality of design and detailing, quality of workmanship, use of materials and sustainability, were chosen last month during a series of Covid-secure visits.
The winners of the competition were announced in a virtual ceremony earlier this week.
David Ritchie, East Suffolk’s cabinet member for planning and coastal management, said: "As always, we received an incredibly high standard of entries with some extremely impressive builds.
