RIBA Award winner, 19 May 2011

The Meat Factory is a domestic experiment in sustainable living, located in a deprived area of Nottingham and occupied by the architect owner. The house will no doubt act as a catalyst for change and an increased awareness of sustainable issues in the neighbourhood.

Built over a number of years, much of it by the architect owner himself, the design grew organically as he tried out ideas. Sometimes this was in response to the availability of materials, sometimes because another project had fallen through – for instance the design of the glass bridge re-used from an unbuilt scheme. There is a sense that this might be a continuing process and that the plan and the elevations could evolve further over time.
