Nottingham HOUSE front page news in top building magazine

It was one of the biggest projects ever undertaken by architecture students at The University of Nottingham and today it made the front cover of Housebuilder, the leading magazine magazine for residential development and regeneration. Here’s the article.

The Nottingham HOUSE (Home Optimising the Use of Solar Energy) was Britain’s entry in the very first Solar Decathlon Europe staged in Madrid in 2010. A team of architecture students, members of staff and alumni in partnership with Saint-Gobain took on some of Europe’s finest to design build a low cost, zero carbon, starter home.

In June 2014 the Nottingham HOUSE was rebuilt on Green Close – taking its place among the energy efficient homes which are part of the Creative Energy Homes ‘living lab’ on University Park.

Today Housebuilder magazine said it is the zero carbon home house builders should know about. If you want to know the story behind this extraordinary student project watch these videos.
