New-build house Lewes, East Sussex
Project profile update!
Leaf Yard is a new-build house situated in Lewes, East Sussex. The House occupies half of a recently divided residential plot and replaces part of an old stable block shared with a neighbouring property. The new house is arranged to with an upper and lower ground floor due to the change of level across the site.
The house is constructed with an airtight timber frame construction with an external leaf of brickwork. A double timber frame structure was used creating an insulated zone of 225mm inside of the brickwork finish, resulting in a super insulated building fabric with roof u-values of 0.10 // floor 0.11 // walls 0.14. The upper ground floor area features a super insulated floor construction with a polished screed finish, this combined with carefully considered large glazed openings allows for maximum passive solar gain and thermal mass heat storage. The new house also makes use of an MVHR system reclaiming energy from the extracted air of kitchen and wet room spaces to be re-used to heat bedroom and living spaces.
