New build house using the PassivHaus Planning Package

Tom Hughes

We're designing a new build house for a village in Nottinghamshire, using the PassivHaus Planning Package (PHPP) as a design tool.

The site has an excellent orientation, allowing extensive use of passive and active solar collection to the rear of the property. The north, street-facing facade has been developed to respond sensitively to its Conservation Area setting.

The project is currently going through consultation with the village residents and Local Authority planning department prior to the submission of a planning application.
