Planning permission granted


This house is designed for a changing climate where extremes of temperature will become more common. Glazed openings on the south elevation are shaded by overhangs to shade high elevation summer sun to reduce summer overheating but to allow passive solar gain in the winter. Windows on the north elevation are smaller to reduce heat loss in the winter but in the summer allow cross ventilation and purging of warm air during the night. External walls are thick to allow insulation exceeding current standards.
