Rural Passive House design for 2018

passivhaus architecture company house design

This is our latest passive house project about to be submitted for planning approval in early 2018. On the edge of a town in County Cork, nestled in a beautiful valley with stunning views. The design orients the main dining room toward a distant ruin on the horizon, and the accommodation is sequenced to work with the daily (apparent!) sun movement. The approach from the rear is behind a dramatic screen wall and mounded earth fill which rolls the landscape onto part of the roof. The building is exceptionally private at first, and then opens outward from within.
