Gorey house commended in UK architectural awards
A HOUSE built high above Gorey that had to meet the strict requirements of its residents, including a colony of lizards, has been recognised in a national architectural competition.
La Vregie, a modern eco-friendly single-storey granite dwelling, is the new home of the former chairman of Jersey Heritage, Jurat John de Veulle and his wife Bridget – who have submitted plans to develop the nearby pumping station into one of the Island's smallest houses, as reported on Monday.
They engaged Eddie Caldeira of Design Plus Limited to create their dream home and on Monday his work was recognised by the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists.
The institute is the UK qualifying body for architectural technology and it represents those practising and studying within the discipline.
