The house was designed with tall ceilings and a double height hallway, in which a feature staircase and gallery landing are set. The rooms are all dual aspect to
maximise daylight and the house is equipped with super high levels of insulation and air tightness to make sure that very little heat is lost. The house also features high specification of finish including even paint which
reduces VOX toxins in the air creating a cleaner and fresher environment for living. The house achieved Passivhaus accreditation which is the highest level of
sustainability measure for construction.
This is a whole new build house project. The client brief was to create a Multi-Comfort Home and achieve a Passivhaus design and build standard to deliver a truly sustainable home for the future. They were also keen to be part of the build process by project managing and overseeing the works. The Benchmark Architects team designed a unique 4 bedroom detached house with 3 reception rooms including a large living kitchen and
dining space at the rear of the property facing onto the garden to the south.
