Squire House Shortlisted for RIBA North West Award
Squire House, designed by HPA, is one of 16 schemes in the North West which have been shortlisted for a 2013 RIBA Award, by the Royal Institute of British Architects.
The RIBA North West Awards recognise innovative architecture within the region. The shortlisted buildings will be assessed by a regional jury with the winners of the award announced on the evening of Wednesday, 12th June 2013. Regional winners will then be considered for a highly-coveted RIBA National Award which will be announced on the same evening.
Squire House is a low-energy contemporary 6 bedroom house in the Forest of Bowland AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty). The house is constructed from hybrid timber frame containing a conventional panel system and a stunning oak frame, clad in cedar. Energy efficiency measures involve a zero-carbon heating system, highly insulated building fabric (including walls and windows), solar panels, and a mechanical ventilation system with heat recovery.
Other green features include the recyclability of the building, with a high percentage of the components being recyclable.
