Acomb Green. York

Proposed four-bedroom detached house, designed to meet PassivHaus standard.

The plan is split into two ‘blocks’, making reference to the way the adjacent Georgian/Edwardian house is split into two sets of rooms either side of a circulation space. The blocks are then splayed to optimise the internal space within the dwelling.

The elevations are split into 8 strips, making a vertical emphasis.
The window strips make reference again to the bay windows on the neighbouring elevation.
