Visit an impressive certified Passivhaus. Find out what makes a Passivhaus different from other modern houses and what it is really like to live in one. Does it live up to its design promises?
This home was built in 2015 for the current owners. It was designed by local architect Andrew Yeats (Eco Arc Architects) and constructed using an airtight, pre-insulated timber frame by Eden Insulation, with the overall build managed by local contractor Sam Nelson.
It features a very high standard of airtightness. Its impressively low airtightness result was the second-best ever achieved in the UK at the time of test.
High levels of insulation, together with roof-mounted solar panels and a variety of other energy-saving features complete this impressive design.
We’re able to offer this visit free of charge thanks to generous support from South Lakeland District Council.
