Three bedrooms, deceptively spacious, sought after area, stunning views of original work of sculpture…

 

That’s how the sales brochure could read for a new housing development in East Yorkshire thanks to a student at the University of Lincoln.

 

Bovis Homes, who are building a new development of homes in Brough, near Hull, invited Fine Art students at the Lincoln School of Art & Design to take part in a competition to design a piece of sculpture to adorn the new development.

 

Second-year mature student Dusty Hindle, from Friskney near Boston, won the competition with her design for a kingfisher, a bird which features on the Bovis Homes logo.

 

She won £250 for herself with a further £250 donated by Bovis Homes to the Fine Art Department at the Lincoln School of Art & Design where Dusty studies.

 

“Bovis Homes approached the university to suggest the competition and we were pleased with the number of students who took the trouble to enter,” said a university spokesman.

 

Dusty is currently working with Bovis Homes’ sculptor and the developers say the finished work of art will be produced and installed as soon as the designs have been finalised.
