Ship Shape Construction – Homebuilding & Renovating 2014 Winner

The annual Daily Telegraph Homebuilding & Renovating Awards were announced in November 2014 and ‘Uphill House’, the project designed by Robert Dye Architects and completed by Ship Shape Construction won the top honour of best Residential Design 2014.

The property features a series of split-level floors following the natural gradient of the hillside and meeting the ground at different levels. The central staircase rises through a naturally bright central core, past the bedroom level and finishing at the master bedroom suite. This is situated at the original roof level and allows dramatic views from Hampstead over the rooftops of London.

The property is highly eco-friendly, incorporating many sustainable features such as green roofs, rain water harvesting and a HRV (heat recovery ventilation) system to achieve a Code for Sustainable Homes level 4 and an Eco-homes rating of “Very Good”.

The dramatic structural design is enhanced by the use of raw and industrial materials: kiln-fired larch cladding, polished concrete, walk on glass and stainless steel.
