1000 Passivhaus Trust

Passivhaus Trust


The UK Passivhaus Awards, now in its second year, celebrates the design and performance of Passivhaus in the UK. Organised by the Passivhaus Trust (PHT), it aims to highlight the achievements of the Passivhaus pioneers and show that Passivhaus can be applied to any building type and context to create beautiful buildings. 

This year’s Awards have seen a variety of projects from different and challenging contexts successfully achieving the Passivhaus standard and enhancing the internal environments of the occupiers. Projects from this year’s shortlist have broken the Passivhaus stereotype and include schemes designed in Conservation areas, using innovative construction techniques such as Brettstapel Construction, and a social Cohousing project, one of the very few in the UK.
The shortlisted projects for this year’s awards are:
Private Housing (sponsored by Ecology Building Society)
Crossway Passivhaus, Hawkes Architecture Ltd.
Plummerswood, Gaia Architects
Totnes Passivhaus, Passivhaus Homes Ltd.
Social Housing (sponsored by Kingspan)
