New House low energy house on backland site

The proposed new dwelling is situated in the southern part of the site and utilises the change in level in order to minimise amenity impact on the neighbouring properties. The proposed dwelling is two storeys, however the lowerground floor is built into the site by half a storey and therefore ensures that the new dwelling will have minimal impact on the views from adjacent properties.

The dwelling provides a 4 bed contemporary house. The applicant has high aspirations for low impact, comfortable living and as such the house is designed with sustainability as an essential element. The house will be designed and constructed to the highest environmental standards and will use PassiveHouse principles to minimise energy usage.

The proposed materials and design seek to respect and enhance the World Heritage Site status of Bath, the Conservation Area and the adjacent context. As far as possible it will only include materials and products that minimise negative impact on the environment

The Stealthy Healthy House

This innovative newbuild house occupies a previously disused alleyway, and has been designed using sustainable materials and processes throughout. The external finish is Douglas Fir cladding, which is a UK-grown durable softwood. It is low maintenance and is treated with OSMO which is an environmentally sound stain, and gives the house its striking appearance.

The house is designed with a breathing wall construction system that uses natural, low carbon renewable materials, and ensures very low waste external walls and roof.

High levels of insulation, natural light, and passive ventilation significantly reduce energy consumption and create a wonderfully light and comfortable environment inside.

Long Close

A Beautiful new detached four-bedroom family house, located in south Winchester near the river Itchen. The house is designed to harmonise with the surrounding architecture, with a brick face and zinc-clad single pitch to the front. At the back, the upper storey looks out onto the south-facing garden and is clad in Siberian larch, which is super durable and will weather to a beautiful warm silver finish.

Inside, the house opens up to over 2,200 sq ft of living space, with an impressive open-plan downstairs interior. Here, a bespoke white kitchen, dining room, and living room with beautifully detailed Herringbone parquet flooring flow around a Rais wood-burning stove within a central pillar. Large tri-fold aluminium glazed doors allow the living spaces to open out into the expansive garden with paved dining area. Upstairs, leafy views are framed through large panoramic windows in stylish, contemporary bedrooms.
