The house has a fabric first approach to the design with very low U Values and air leakage and used Passivhaus detailing. The glazing orientation and building overhangs promote beneficial solar gains in winter, and manage high solar gains in the summer. A large roof mounted photovoltaic array and electric car charging facilities and an electrical storage battery use renewable energy.
Heat recovery from waste air is used to preheat incoming air during winter. Natural ventilation from high and low level openings and central ‘atrium’ promoting stack ventilation forces during summer.
