We are delighted to have sponsored the Award for Best Contemporary Home at the Homebuilding & Renovating Awards 2023. This year’s winner was a stunning home in Duffield, Derbyshire, designed by architects Blee Halligan.
The judges were impressed by the home’s bold and purposeful design, which took inspiration from the historic 18th-century red-brick cotton mills that still abound in the surrounding Derwent Valley area. The home was described as a “masterclass of restraint and rigour, both externally and internally”.
“The detailing is exquisite, and it shows just what can be delivered with a highly experienced architect,” said judge Darran Bray. “It’s a modest piece of architecture, as it sits in the street scene very quietly, almost not announcing its presence to its neighbours. That’s always the mark of a successful piece of architecture.”
Team Korniche are passionate about precision, simplicity, and beauty, and we believe that this home embodies all these qualities. Our roof lanterns, bi-folding doors, and new flat glass rooflights are all designed with these same principles in mind. We are proud to have sponsored this award and to be associated with such high-quality architecture.
