Private Residence: Bryne Lane, Padbury, Buckinghamshire

HDA scooped a 2010 Aylesbury Vale Design Award for its work on this bespoke dwelling.

The house sits on a very small, triangular site and beautifully corresponds to the course of the adjoining lane with a long, curved facade and slate roof with eaves at one and a half storeys height.

The building features measures to limit the use of energy and resources including a rainwater harvesting system, solar thermal and high efficiency boiler system by Atmos Ltd and highly insulated and airtight building fabric that exceeds the requirements of the Building Regulations.
