BLANDFORD FORUM, DORSET
CLIENT - PRIVATE CLIENT
This new house was built to energy efficiency standards far in advance of the Building Regulations at the time, and was named Best Ecological House in the Homebuilding & Renovating Magazine Awards 2004.
The sloping ground has allowed a basement to take advantage of the ground’s thermal mass, and glazing to the southern side makes the most of solar gain. The two storey sun room can be opened up to the house when required to circulate the heated air.
Other features include solar hot water heating, whole house ventilation & heat recovery and rainwater harvesting.
