Ike Obanye, People's Choice for House Of The Year Award 2020

Architect Ike Obanye (Unit 8, Studio TB-22) was recently shortlisted for The Daily Telegraph’s House of the Year Awards 2020, championing Britain’s most inspiring homes, for The Eels Nest.

Ike was the very proud recipient of The People's Choice Award.

About The Eels Nest:
This project is a rather special one. The site is a really narrow (only 4.2m wide) and sloping site that previously housed a dilapidated single car garage. But, we managed to replace the garage and deliver a 3 bedroom house that not only provides a stunning home for our client and his family, but is completely self-sustaining, generating its own energy (electricity from the sun, heat from the ground), filters rainwater, sells surplus energy to the grid, and has a well landscaped rear garden where they can grow their own food.
