Commended (£500) - Paul Hewitt and Andrew Muddiman

  • Comment

The scheme includes 25 dwellings of various sizes arranged in a terrace that follows the line of the river. The dwellings were intended to meet the autonomous standard, by combining superinsulation and ventilation heat recovery with passive solar design and thermal mass. Although it was felt that the authors were somewhat optimistic about some aspects of the performance, the design is technically sound and the submission has probably one of the lowest fuel consumption figures of the shortlisted schemes. The assessors felt, however, that the built form and details were disappointingly traditional, and though the materials and construction techniques proposed were quite innovative, the architectural form and detailing lacked originality.
