The Green Residential Building Award

28 Albany Road - Joseph Little Architects

residential_1750 residential_2_1750

Judges said

The original house was built in 1928 and was about as energy inefficient as it was possible to be. But after this sharp upgrade, and the construction of a rear extension the house is performing brilliantly. The property includes lots of clever features – from the rainwater harvesting, to lots of new insulation and solar hot water. And the energy bills are now just tiny fraction of what they used to be.
