Passivhaus projects are often single dwellings on rural or semi-rural sites. Sulgrave Gardens represents a real step forward in bringing Passivhaus standards into common use in the UK. Its affordable and deliverable format is a model for higher density use in towns and cities, proving that Passivhaus dwellings are a viable proposition in urban locations that might previously have been deemed unsuitable.

The attractive brick finish and careful detailing demonstrates that eco-homes can be attractive, and don’t have to look idiosyncratic or incongruous.

As a practice we have always been interested in pushing the practical application of new technologies to create better buildings. Our offsite manufacture and lean design expertise was invaluable when dealing with the enhanced thermal and airtightness requirements on this scheme. We will be undertaking Building Performance Evaluation and occupier wellbeing surveys on this project.
