House on Mount Anville

Residential

A low energy A-rated tailor made home

Key to this design was the client’s requirement for his new house to be energy efficient, cheap to run and to make the best of his site. The form, layout and detail of the house result from these requirements and were guided by best principles of sustainable design. The house is orientated east west and is kept tight to the north boundary to open up the south facade of the house to the sun. The south façade has then been composed using full-height triple-glazed windows and sliding screens to maximize the solar gain. The east, west and north façades are exceptionally thermally efficient. The house is a combination of the best of both new and traditional construction technologies. The super-insulated, airtight timber framed structure has been precision-made off site. This hi-performance structure has then been wrapped in beautifully crafted traditional brickwork and timber.
