Working in collaboration with Sarah Browne, a Monmouthshire based Architect, we had the pleasure in providing Passivhaus Consultancy for a replacement dwelling. The existing building was an old dilapidated cottage to be replaced by an innovative, low energy family home that is nearly carbon neutral.
The property has been cleverly designed with large amounts of south facing glazing maximising woodland views. Sarah’s experience with Passivhaus is clearly evident as a careful check on summer overheating showed good amounts of solar gain in winter while balcony shading eliminates potential of summer overheating.
