This new build private house was built in the grounds of the clients existing 19th Century Home. The home has three levels and is partially built into the hillside. The thermal elements exceed building regulations, and this allows the use of renewable and low energy technologies.
Our brief was to explore the use of technologies available that could be deployed in the design. Ventilation is via heat recovery systems throughout, and heating is by underfloor heating using ground source heat pumps. The heat pumps derive energy from a borehole, which also provides drinking water.
The low energy strategy is complimented by photovoltaics, which uses battery storage to retain electricity for deployment during periods of low generation.
