Temple Avenue Prototypes, Derwenthorpe, York

64 low-energy homes form the first phase of this exemplar sustainable community for the Joseph Rowntree Foundation. The general structure of the development was established by an adopted masterplan and our brief was to develop suitable house types and an appropriate architectural treatment for the first phase.

Two prototype houses were used to test energy efficiency and renewable energy solutions.  Each house also trialed an alternative ‘Modern Method of Construction’; thin-bed masonry and prefabricated timber frame.  The prototypes were also extensively tested to determine the most appropriate approach and to identify gaps in performance.

Derwenthorpe has won a number of awards and been used as an exemplar project in many publications.
