Temple of Light Wins Two Awards
We are thrilled that the Temple of Light at New Lands, Hampshire (UK) was recently awarded 'Low Energy Project of the Year' and 'Winner of Winners' at the Structural Timber Awards, a testament to the hard work everyone put in to produce a 'low impact' building with technologies designed to work in harmony with the surrounding environment.
For example, the Temple floor is heated by a ground-source heat pump located deep in the ground in an adjacent field. Additionally, much of the floor, in particular the paths surrounding the Temple of Light, utilises hardcore recycled from the previous Temple after it was sadly demolished due to extensive water damage.
When building the new Temple, this not only helped to reduce waste, without the need to produce everything from scratch, but it also allowed us to retain some of the light and energy embedded in the original bricks from the previous Temple.
The Temple of Light at New Lands, along with the gardens and grounds are open to everyone. You can find out more about the Temple, including opening times and what's on by clicking on the button below.
