DOMUS Passivhaus

Letchworth, Hertfordshire

For this superb double–sized corner plot in Letchworth, Ebeneezer Howard’s original Garden City, we were approached by the clients to design an exciting house for the future, using all appropriate eco technologies, as well as being wheelchair acessible on all levels.

The resulting house is spread over three floors, making clever use of natural light and carefully directed views and links to the garden on several levels.

This has been designed as a grass-roofed “PassivHaus”, using highly insulated airtight construction, whole house heat recovery ventilation, making the most of the sun’s natural power and meaning no active heating or cooling will be necessary.
