Fyne Homes Chairman, Peter Lingard, was delighted to accept the Argyll and Bute Sustainable Design Award for the Fyne Initiatives development at Tigh-na-Cladach, Dunoon, at the June meeting of the Argyll and Bute Area Committee.
Tigh-na-Cladach was chosen as the unanimous overall winner following a public vote and judges’ visits to short listed entries. The development has 14 Shared Equity units and a fully accredited ‘Passivhaus’, the first in Scotland and the first for affordable housing in the UK.
The Argyll and Bute Design Awards are intended to recognise, promote and celebrate examples of exceptional design quality within both an urban and rural context across the whole of the Argyll and Bute Council Planning Area. The Awards provide a means of stimulating greater public awareness of good design and establish good examples on the ground.
