Summer is officially over, and the autumnal weather has arrived with a welcome freshness! We had a well-deserved extended summer break, while September has been fully utilised to catch up, hence the lengthy pause in our practice updates. We’ve started a number of new and exciting projects, had fun exploring interesting concepts, negotiated and won planning permissions, and continue to design and oversee construction on several low energy builds, new and retrofit.

Here is a site photo of our new build timber frame house in Oxford under construction. The walls are lined with a high-performance foil vapour control layer, taped to provide a continuous airtight layer on the inside of the insulation. A service batten void ensures that any services do not penetrate and therefore compromise airtightness. This first floor landing area will receive a large triple-glazed window to show off the stunning landscape that the house was designed around.

We’re excited to share more updates in the months to come, including introductions to our new team members. In the meantime, get in touchto speak with architects that specialise in ecological design.
