Minchinhampton

Private House


Background

A 1960’s bungalow in a stunning south facing elevated site provided the opportunity for a sustainable, contemporary oak framed house.

Design

There is a curved green oak frame with a traditional slate pitched roof that embraces the view and creates a split level sun terrace overlooking the valley. Five different levels respond to the site, maximising the views and addressing and brief in detail.

Technical

A ground source heat pump, solar panels, high levels of natural wood fibre insulation and rainwater harvesting ensure that the sustainability of the house is maintained for the life of the building.
