LABC BUILDING EXCELLENCE AWARDS 2010
Although this may not be the most architecturally elegent of KDAs designs, it does represent our approach to problem solving which was recognised by the local authority in their nomination of the project for a design excellence award.
The project was introduced by a client who's non-architect designer had failed to achieve Building Regulations approval. Our brief was to achieve approval without revisions to the planning permission so the exterior had to be that which had been approved.
Lodge Close was a finalist in this National Award Scheme.
Although we didn't win, being finalists is a great honour.
May 2012 - Lodge Close was opened to the Public for 3 days during the Taunton "Green Doors" event and Keith delivered a lecture on Sustainable Retrofitting at the Brew House Theatre in Taunton.

The most recent "Super-Retrofit" design undertaken by KDA was seen on "Britain's Empty Homes" in October 2012 and the finished project will be screened in 2013.
On screen the clients say "We have a good architect on board".
