Special Category Award - Resource Efficiency
The winner of Zero Waste Scotland’s Resource Efficiency Award

Warren McIntyre, Head of the Resource Efficient Scotland programme at Zero Waste Scotland said:

“Set in the hamlet of Gorstan in the Scottish Highlands, this elegant, fully certified PassivHaus, nestles quietly into an area of former crofting land. The brief was simply to create a quality modern and low energy home from which the owners could enjoy their love of outdoor pursuits whilst living in an environmentally responsible, low impact manner. It sits well in its context, utilising traditional materials in an innovative way.”
