Sustainable By Design
Client: BRE Trust
sustainableBYdesign's detailed proposal for a large family house at Ravenscraig is a simple and compact design with a wide frontage and shallow plan layout taking full advantage of the solar orientation available for a detached house - providing a pleasant, healthy, steady-state internal environment and ample sized windows providing plenty of natural daylight. In Summer, the house is protected from overheating by sun shading from the timber pergola /balcony, planted with deciduous climbers for additional shading and greening in summer with full sun exposure in winter months. On the North facade the front entrance is sheltered by a slate-clad porch which also provides secure bicycle and recycling storage.
