Hale Road, Passivhaus
Certified to Passivhaus standard this home replaces an old unloved bungalow on the same site. The site is nestled between two bungalows and is near to a conservation area and area of outstanding national beauty. The design for this project required achieving a sensitive balance between the clients space requirements whilst respecting the lower ridge heights of the neighbours and the traditional street scene.
This traditionally styled Passivhaus demonstrates that Passivhaus’ can be designed in any architectural style. The flat topped hipped roof sensitively masks the presence of PV’s whilst allowing the home to sit comfortably next to it’s neighbours.
Hale house is now open as a B&B, if you would like to experience a Passivhaus for yourself then this is the perfect place to stay. http://www.halehousebnb.co.uk/
“The Ecodesign team were very patient and worked hard to achieve a design & a layout that I was happy with. Their experience & expertise was crucial to me getting Planning Permission and achieving Passivhaus status for my new ‘forever’ home.”
