Housing, Refurbishment

The house is part of a working farmstead with over 300 acres overlooking the English Channel.

We designed the building services for the refurbishment and reconfiguration of the farmhouse to create a comfortable and modern family home.

By stripping the house back to its basic stone structure and then cladding it externally, the proportions and character of the house are retained while the energy performance is vastly improved. We advised on the thermal performance of the new facade, roof and windows to achieve energy costs equivalent to a new-build.

The house's stone walls will be left exposed and 200mm of wood fibre insulation applied externally to achieve a U-value of 0.15W/m2K
