affordable eco-housing

hmad|architects were appointed to design a range of affordable and energy-efficient housing units that create a strong sense of place for the community in this project. The development was arranged around communal gardens to promote community stewardship and provide a large and open green space for the households to spend their leisure time.


The project achieved Code for Sustainable Homes Level 3 and incorporated several renewable technologies. These included: rainwater recycling; solar thermal water heating and mechanical ventilation with heat recovery.


"Seeing it in person, I can say it is a brilliant scheme which will provide much-needed affordable housing in this part of Exeter."

Howard Toplis, Chief Executive of Tor Homes.
