“Proudly possessed of international Passive House status, this home’s low-key massing and colouring allow it to sit comfortably within its context. The decision to move into the street yard to the south not only creates a more useful northern yard, but also means the houses engages with the street and park beyond. The house is sensibly organised for the retired owners, who need to move only about the ground floor, and provides space for visiting family to stay on the upper level.”
