LOW CARBON KIT-HOMES
By offering both Design and Build services, we are able to provide total continuity of process from design right through to completion. We use a pre-fabricated timber frame Kit Home system, which is rapid, low cost and highly efficient. What’s more, when constructed this creates an ultra energy efficient building that reaches and even exceeds PassivHaus standards for insulation and air tightness.
We believe that good design and sustainability go hand in hand. With over 40 years of experience in the housing and commercial sectors; our highly skilled RIBA registered architects are able to create sustainable design that is tailored to your needs, whilst ensuring environmentally positive solutions. Additionally, our architects are able to support the entire project, with experience in project management and obtaining planning permission.
As a collective, we benefit from a variety of expertise in environmental science, climate change and passive construction as well as architectural design and management. We are able to offer sustainable consultancy, with a particular emphasis on energy in buildings and passive design guidance. Furthermore, we have significant management consultancy expertise, focusing on sustainability, local authority construction and equal opportunities.
THE WHITE COTTAGE, DARTMOOR
Timber frame, new build thatch extension, solar thermal hot water, Devon thatch and cedar cladding.
This extension to a traditional thatch farmhouse cottage, was in keeping with the rural Devon vernacular on Dartmoor. The project involved a south facing light and airy timber frame extension, for clients with an organic small holding. This unique project involved a new traditional reed thatch roof, and solar thermal hot water system.
PASSIVE HOUSE, LARCH CLADDING, DRESSED STONE AND WHITE RENDER
Timber frame kit home using our Passivhaus build system. The project featured, vertical timber cladding, white render and natural stonework to the external facade.
The project also features biomass heating in the form of a wood burning stove alongside solar thermal hot water.
The overall aesthetic is very pleasing and the client will benefit from very low energy bills for heating and hot water.
