A certified passive house completed recently in South Dublin 2017. It was designed as a four bed home/office. The limited access corner garden site with good light and aspect was chosen by the clients to make a home and garden that worked together. This family home keeps to many of the techniques of passive design such as compact form, shaded generous glazing to the south, passive slab, double stud walls, cellulose insulation, hyper-airtightness, passive ventilation for summer cooling and heat recovery ventilation for Winter fresh air. Planning restrictions regarding the use of local materials, restricted heights and building lines combined with a stepped plan to make the most of the curving site. The clients enjoy gardening and it was important that the house made the most of both front and back gardens while creating a close connection to the interior.
- Wheelchair Accessible.
