High levels of thermal mass and air tightness, a biomass boiler and green roof make sustainable home
ArkleBoyce Architects for private client
Contract value: undisclosed
This grade II listed 1852 school-turned-house sits in a quiet rural hamlet, remodelled for the client’s young family. The living space is enlarged to create a contemporary extension along the southern boundary with panoramic views of the garden and rural landscape. Unchanged, the listed building is connected to the extension by a lightweight glass link. As the extension is not visible from the street it does not affect the village’s character. High levels of thermal mass and air tightness, a biomass boiler and green roof are incorporated.
