A brownfield site with a history of agricultural use, the plot for this dwelling has the advantages of a quiet setting with rear gardens outlooking open fields.

Within a group of two storey dwellings and small scale agricultural buildings, the design draws from simple agricultural shed forms with solid brick bases beneath floating slate roofs. The accommodation is arranged within two ‘wings’, with a central linking entrance and circulation.

Designed to Passive House principles, the dwelling uses a highly insulated and airtight external envelope, air to water heat exchange for space heating, solar thermal water hearting, bris soleil to south facing windows and triple glazing.
