Leading on from last month’s blog RIBA Excellence in Architecture – 2019 Stirling Prize Shortlist the winner has now been formally announced.
First place was awarded to Goldsmith Street by Mikhail Riches with Cathy Hawley .
The project is a major development of new council-owned energy efficient homes in Norwich and is one of the largest collections of Passivhaus homes constructed in the UK.
With two story houses bookended by three-story flats, the homes are a passive solar scheme, designed to minimise fuel bills for residents: annual energy costs are estimated to be 70% cheaper than for the average household.
