Penoyre & Prasad, Anne Thorne Architects and Robert Cohen and Bob Prewett are all up for the domestic retrofit project of the year award.

The Retrofit for a Living project earned Penoyre & Prasad a shortlisting for its work retrofitting a 1990s mid-terrace two-storey house.

Robert Cohen & Bob Prewett were selected for their work on the C80 refurb project, which cut energy use in a 150-year old mid-terrace house by 80%.

Anne Thorne Architects was selected for its Retrofit for the Future project on St Luke’s Street in Stoke-on-Trent, a scheme which used Passivhaus principles to reduce emissions from a terraced house.
