A warm, comfortable
Kate and Paul asked us to modernise and extend their cramped, cold 1960s semi-detached house to create a warm, comfortable and spacious home for their family. With energy efficiency a key priority, we embarked on an EnerPHit retrofit of the property. Enerphit is the Passivhaus retrofit standard and sets the most stringent benchmark for energy performance.
We remodelled the ground floor to create an open plan kitchen, living and dining space for spending quality time together. A new side extension added even more space for the essentials of family life: such as generous utility space, playroom, downstairs W.C. with lots of storage space.
Upstairs, we added a new main bedroom that leads out onto a secluded roof terrace. This is the perfect retreat for Kate and Paul to spend time at the end of a long day.
It has been an enjoyable experience and since the planning application has been approved, I look forward to a new adventure ahead where I know I’ll be in safe hands!Kate, Sheffield
We worked closely with contractor Terry Huggett to achieve the rigorous Passivhaus Enerphit performance and energy standard needed for the house. It has made Paul and Kate’s home comfortable to live in all year round with low-running costs.
