Ventura

A small dilapidated 1930's bungalow stood on the site of this new house. As well as taking advantage of distant countryside views and natural solar gain, the design provides a substantial 3-4 bedroom house on a compact site. Highly insulated, with a mvhr (mechanical ventilation heat recovery system) the house is constructed to Passivhaus standards.

Matt's House

The design of this house had to be sensitive to its location next to a Grade II listed house also within an AONB (area of outstanding natural beauty). Traditional natural local materials were used and ground levels were lowered so that the house had good internal heights whilst not overshadowing its older neighbour.

Built to Passivhaus standards and completed in 2010 the design takes full advantage of passive solar gain through the orientation of the building and incorporates such features as a mechanical ventilation & heat recovery system (mvhr), solar water heating, triple glazing, exceptionally high levels of insulation, a double-sided multi-fuel stove, locally grown cedar and stone from a nearby quarry. It has exceeded expectations in terms of low fuel requirements.
