Event description

Description

A new build modernist certified Passivhaus, this striking home is a sympathetic response to its urban setting and sits comfortably alongside its more traditional neighbouring properties. Its simple rectangular form is on the cutting edge of sustainable design, constructed utilising modern and innovative methods and built with family living in mind.

The house was built from a super-insulated timber frame, which was constructed off-site. The frame was supplied with insulation and airtight membrane, and erected on a passive slab in 3 weeks, speeding up the overall programme, and minimising wastage and disturbance to neighbours.

To reduce the carbon footprint of the building, recycled paper insulation and external timber cladding was chosen minimising the use of concrete and steel to less than 10% of the total volume of the building.
