It has just been announced that bere:architects in collaboration with the Prince's Foundation for the Built Environment have been shortlisted in the BRE UK Passivhaus Competition for both the Watford and the Ravenscraig sites. The brief was to design a semi-detached residential Passivhaus for Watford where one dwelling will be allocated for social housing and one for mid-range market housing.

The Mayville Community Centre picked up the award for Best Public Building at the 3R (Refurb, Rethink, Retrofit) Awards 2011 at a presentation held last night at the Royal Garden Hotel, Kensington, where many of those playing a pioneering role in this sector were present. 

Following the success of the inaugural Retrofit Awards, launched in 2010, the awards were expanded to include all areas of the retrofit and refurbishment markets.

 

The Larch House has won the Low Energy Social Housing Project of the Year at the Sustainable Housing Awards 2011 having been shortlisted within a strong field of finalists. 

The Sustainable Housing Awards, organized by Inside Housing magazine and its sister publication Sustainable Housing, focus on the best green social housing projects constructed in the UK and the organizations responsible for them.

The Mayville Community Centre has been shortlisted in the 3R Awards Public Building category alongside Central Hall, Keighley (Hodson Architects) and The Octagon, Haringey (Mace).  The winners will be anounced at an awards ceremony on 10th November at The Royal Garden Hotel, Kensington.

The Larch house has won the Sustainability Category at the RICS Wales 2011 awards. The coveted award was collected by bere: architects and United Welsh Housing Association at a ceremony in Cardiff on Friday 13th May. Although much smaller in scale than any of the other shortlisted projects, the Larch House was praised for being a genuine solution for low energy social housing and for providing a significant educational role for building professionals and school children alike through the regular tours that have been organised over the past year.

bere:architects are very pleased that our office and Justin’s home known as ‘The Muse’ has been honoured with the 2009 award for Best Environmental Project. This was a particularly enjoyable occasion because this prize gave Justin the opportunity to meet Penny Poyzer, leader of the judges, who was one of the original project members of the Hockerton Housing Project with Robert and Brenda Vale. A weekend in Cambridgeshire and a visit to Hockerton are planned for the Spring….

Below is the official press release, 6th November 2009, and at the bottom are judges technical comments made by the Building Research Establishment (Wales) experts:

Two highly energy efficient homes that will produce more than 80% less carbon emissions than a standard new house have been chosen as the overall winners of the Welsh Passive House architectural competition.
