Detail Award Winner 2020

Construction Awards Winner In the Detail Award category, judges singled out winner MELOY Architects, for Hill House Passivhaus. The project has features designed to reference modern agricultural structures, including a galvanized ramp leading to the front entrance and hot dip galvanized window trims, which frame the full-height, sliding glazing.

The house was conceived as a memory of two dilapidated sheds which the project has replaced. The first contains an open plan living area and benefits from a southerly aspect with full height sliding glazing onto the rear garden. The second contains the bedrooms with east facing windows giving morning light and a more private aspect onto a wooded copse. The space between the ‘sheds’ is then efficiently planned as a core containing all support spaces.
