Why to consider design-led Passivhaus for your build


Do you want a building with zero or minimal energy bills which also looks and feels amazing?


Passivhaus is a internationally recognised comfort and energy building standard which uses passive, low-tech techniques to drastically reduce, or eliminate the need for space heating. Its formula includes significant levels of insulation, high air-tightness, triple glazing, minimal thermal bridges and mechanical ventilation and heat recovery to provide an exceptionally healthy and comfortable indoor environment with low running costs.


While some Passivhaus buildings are simple in form and design, we believe in pushing the boundaries to achieve the high standard in exciting, carefully crafted buildings. We move away from the formulaic to test new forms and architecturally strong shapes which are informed by their context. In short, our Passivhaus buildings have that ‘wow-factor’ as well as excelling in every element of design.


Passivhaus is suitable for every building type. With our design-led Passivhaus, achieving low energy compliance doesn’t mean having to compromise other elements of the design. We have used design-led Passivhaus to create exciting designs in locations with difficult planning constraints such, as Conservation Areas, while challenging the limitations of modular construction methods to help bring these designs to life.


Our approach fits with our ethos, and we have created this document as a starting guide for anyone interested in bringing a building to life. We would love to discuss your project further.



Our design-led Passivhaus buildings are imaginative, exciting buildings which result in a higher quality of life and minimal running costs.
