Con­tem­po­rary Pas­sivhaus

Build It - - RENOVATION & BUILDING -

A green ethos lies at the heart of this eye-catch­ing mod­ern scheme, the de­sign of which was de­vel­oped by Gres­ford Ar­chi­tects. A highly in­su­lated skele­ton (man­u­fac­tured off­site by MBC Tim­ber Frame) was key to achiev­ing the cer­ti­fied Pas­sivhaus stan­dards of en­ergy per­for­mance. The struc­ture was erected in just three weeks, with the swift construction speed min­imis­ing the amount of labour re­quired on site. Re­cy­cled pa­per in­su­la­tion and sus­tain­ably-sourced wood cladding were also cho­sen to help re­duce the over­all car­bon foot­print of the project.
