This award-winning eco house in a quiet suburb of the city was designed for an art collector requiring plenty of good wall areas for the hanging of art as well as naturally well-lit display areas.
The contemporary scheme features Warmcell insulation throughout, providing high levels of thermal performance together with a ground-source heat recovery system and a thermally broken glazing system.
The external walls are clad in natural lime render and UV-protected cedar cladding in order to retain the full colour and appearance of the plank without fading over time. The windows and doors are dark grey powder-coated aluminium and the distinctive curved roof is aluminium clad, having a dull grey appearance like lead.
Although relatively low in height, the house is deceptive internally, having tall floor-to-ceiling areas and high vaulted rooms both at ground and first floor. The design ensures good natural light throughout with large glazed windows opening views to the surrounding gardens. A galleried landing and hallway at first floor enable views internally down through the open plan design of the house giving a pleasing integrated feel of spaces within and without the home.
