KEY PROJECT - Windsor Cottage

3 storey eco-extension to detached dwelling

The brief for the large household was to create additional family living space, multiple study areas and to accommodate six bedrooms. The site constraints were significant and the scheme utilizes the infill space between the rear of the house and the garden at FF level.

The three-storey extension encases the existing dwelling and provides continuity between the indoor and outdoor spaces. Our clients were also keen to establish a healthy indoor environment and this was achieved by working carefully with a like-minded local contractor and employing a palette of natural and vapour open ‘breathable’ construction materials by Ecological Building Systems -EBT @niall crosson EBT also provided an on-site ‘tool box’ talk to assist with air-tightness details and  installation techniques.

In building for the 21st century - and with our children’s health, wellbeing and future in mind - we need to take a more cyclic approach, whereby we seek to resolve the cycles without environmental damage.
