The approach

Our clients came to us with a brief to transform their existing rural cottage to create a contemporary eco-house taking advantage of the views across the open countryside.

We opted to add a contemporary lightweight first-floor addition built off the pre-existing house as a foundation. The first-floor addition houses a large contemporary open plan living space with large expanses of glazing strategically positioned to take advantage of the breathtaking views available. At ground floor level the new eco-house boasts beautifully proportioned bedroom spaces each with access to a private terrace to the south.

The key environmental strategies employed will consist of: Full solar PV south-facing roof plane, Air-source heat pumps, Solar gain captured in the thermal mass of the first-floor plate, Greywater harvesting, Wildflower meadow, Passive house airtightness / insulating values, Triple glazing and Smart house controls.
