Envisioned as an interesting and inspiring blend of old and new, the Clifton Hill House is a residential project designed by Nic Owen Architects in Australia. The client’s request was to preserve some of the Victorian elements of the old structure, without neglecting the modern approach towards design and sustainability. His wish was to restore the Victorian cottage he had, adding a couple of modern details. “The main objective with the Clifton Hill House was to create a home that both shelters and enhances the daily living of the clients for now and generations to come. The primary function of providing shelter to a family of four that embraces and respects the environment while protecting and sheltering the clients from the harsh elements has resulted in a building that can honestly call itself green.”

The exterior looks imposing while the interior exudes warmth and coziness. Wood is the main material used in defining the interior. The house itself accommodates an open-plan kitchen-lounge room, three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a study room. The upgrade implied a series of sustainable actions, such as: solar heat minimisation, cross-ventilation and paint that reflects the sun’s heat.

Value for money is not, and never was, the same as being cheap. Value for money means making the most of whatever budget is available. A good example of this is Hayes Primary School in London, by Hayhurst and Co. Having to contend with a tightly controlled 3 million local authority budget, they worked with the existing structure of the primary school to give it a much needed update. A striking polished stainless steel brise-soleil facade installed at the school’s entrance, gives the school’s many different buildings a sense of identity, while new classrooms have been created in a range of shapes and sizes, and are often flooded with natural light

These days, a building doesnt just have to look good, it should ideally be good for the environment too. A great example of sustainability spliced with style from the past few years is the M&S store at Cheshire Oaks Retail Park in Ellesmere Port, designed by Aukett Fitzroy Robinson.
