Passivhaus Retrofits


This Victorian property in the centre of Chorlton had spent many years serving as 5 apartments. During this time many original features had been lost. The proposal is to return to the original use of two semi-detached homes and reinstate the beautiful original façade.

Beyond the traditional detailing is a modern eco-home which has been designed to go beyond the EnerPHit standard and create a home that has energy bills of less than £100 per year. This will be achieved through high performance windows, extremely high levels of air tightness and insulation, MVHR and clever detailing to avoid cold bridging. The exterior is renovated with new robust materials such as copper gutters to reduce maintenance and increase longevity. Adding to this a complete renewal of the interior finishes with environmentally friendly petrochemical free materials two sustainable 5 bedroom luxury homes are created.
