Focus House

Containing 39 projects from around the world, I found this is a rewarding book because all the projects are compact, fascinating, jewel-like and the photographs are complimented by good layout drawings and contextual diagrams. We are pleased that Focus House was one of four UK houses selected for the book.

Focus House

Grand Designs Magazine

December 2007

bere:architects were awarded Best Eco House at the Grand Designs Awards on Friday night. The awards, presented by Kevin McCloud, were recorded for television. In his statement afterwards for the television cameras, Justin Bere expressed the sentiment that we are very fortunate to live and work in the UK in the early 21st Century. “Most people in the world do not have the opportunities that we have…” he said, “…and this makes it all the more important to try to do the right thing for the greater good.”

bere:architects were last night presented with the Small House of the Year award for the Focus House project in North London at the British Homes Awards 2007. The awards, presented by Jack Pringle, President of the RIBA and Fiona Fullerton, columnist for the Daily Mail, were sponsored by The Mail on Sunday, NHBC and BRE. bere:architects had also been shortlisted in the Home for the Future category for Comfort-Haus.

The RIBA last night presented bere:architects with a London Region Award for the Focus House project in North London. The house will now be put forward for the RIBA National Awards in June.
