CD's Orchard House Wins Award for 'Best House in the Region'

Orchard House

Imagine walking through the doors of one of the best designed houses in the UK, where every corner exudes attention to detail and innovation. Orchard House, now a masterpiece in architectural design and construction, recently claimed the prestigious LABC Award for 'Best House in the Region' and was recognized as one of the top 10 in the country. This accolade is a testament to the meticulous attention to detail in design quality, pushing the boundaries of innovation in the construction industry.

Orchard House was designed as a new sustainable typology for the UK countryside to show that net-zero living could both be harmonious with local vernacular and affordable. We used locally sources timber, reclaimed bricks and SIPs panels filled with an insulation made from rapeseed to reduce embodied energy as much as possible. This was coupled with solar panels, a rain-water harvester, air-source heat pump and a heat recovery system to reduce the operational energy as much as possible resulting in a new zero home, the first in the region. The seamless integration of cutting-edge design elements with sustainable construction practices sets it apart in the competition.

Orchard House's triumph at the LABC Awards underscores our commitment to driving innovation in the construction industry. By emphasizing the importance of design precision, operational efficiency, and construction excellence, Orchard House sets a new benchmark for architectural brilliance in the area something we are capitalising on through our next, even more ambitious projects. The legacy of Orchard House lies not only in its physical structure but also in the legacy of innovation it leaves behind for future projects.
