The clients brief to this project was to design a countryside house in a traditional style while achieving a high level of energy efficiency.
The house was designed to incorporate a front parking courtyard framed by the house, a rear wing and the garage.
An A2 energy rating was achieved by means of high levels of building insulation and airtightness and an Ochener air source heat pump supplying all heating and domestic hot water needs. Ventilation is managed by an Aereco demand-controlled ventilation system. Contractor: www.rathcorballyconstruction.ie
