Case Study House 01

A simple, contemporary scheme with a traditional form to suit an infill site.

The minimal detailing allows for the design to be easily adapted to most locations.

The set-back entrance with dog-tooth masonry detailing brings interest, character and legibility.

The scheme targets good levels of environmental sustainability, with high levels of insulation and airtightness, minimal thermal bridging, mechanical ventilation and high performance windows.

The simple roof form allows for technologies such as solar thermal heating and photovoltaic panels.
