14/09/2023 New Planning Permission

We are delighted to have recently received planning permission for a replacement dwelling on a tucked away and narrow site in Buckinghamshire. The proposals seek to improve the site with a low-energy and highly insulated replacement dwelling that is sustainable and efficient to run. The buildings’ location in the conservation area has been key in order to respect the character of the existing buildings.

The building was designed using a fabric first approach based on Passivhaus principles, with high levels of insulation, triple glazing, an air-source heat pump, solar PV, MVHR and solar shading. Internal spaces have been designed to be adaptable for family life at all stages, including an accessible ground floor with open-plan living spaces and more private areas for working from home that could not be provided by the existing building.
