Scottish Housing Expo

AIM

Woodrock is a bold living space of 2 boxes of honest industry, one in a timber skin floating above the other in white. The proposal seeks to address its site location as a fundamental part of the village hierarchy and does so by holding its position as the central focus of the proposed village green. Industry standard energy efficient systems of heat recovery and solar collection supplement design principles that allow the building to control heat and ventilation to maximize energy efficiency. The house achieves a heating & hot water cost less than £280 per annum.

Client comment: Thorough attention to perceived value and performance as well as an early understanding of the community objectives led to Aims house being one of the most popular with the Public.
