Arc House

Arc House

Project Description:

The steepness of the north facing site, planning restrictions regarding position and height, and relatively narrow plan while the spatial accommodation required by the brief resulted in an elongated single story house. As this does not make for an energy efficient building form, it was necessary to compensate by building up sufficient amount of insulation in the floors, walls and roof.

A further design challenge was the need to hold a balance between responding to views northwards down-slope and eastwards to the sea while opening southwards to the sunshine despite the steep bank. The house has been designed to Passive house Standards.
