This was a challenging project involving the design of a contemporary extension adjacent to a fine arts & crafts style house in Letchworth, the first Garden City. A great deal of effort was invested in presentations and liaison with LGC's Heritage Foundation, as well as the North Herts District Council planning department.
A 3-bed detached dwelling featuring underfloor heating fuelled by an air source heat pump, solar panels, photovoltaic array and 150mm insulated cavity wall construction to provide excellent thermal performance.
An interesting project which hinged on getting the most out of an awkward site. The scheme was broadly based on a triangular shaped dwelling built close to the boundary on two of its sides, with lots of natural light brought in through rooflights set within a sedum roof.
