Ferndown Passivhaus,

Aberdeenshire


(In collaboration with Locate Architects)



Ferndown is a new Passivhaus in a beautiful rural part of Aberdeenshire.


The new house, which replaces an un-upgradeable 1980s bungalow, will have a very simple form to minimise heat loss and, together with a detached garage, will form an enclosed entrance courtyard typical of surrounding farmhouses and outbuildings.


External materials are simple too: vertical timber cladding to shed rain quickly and avoid ledges for leaves to accumulate; lime-pointed granite cladding around the entrance to the house and standing seam metal roofing across both the house and garage.
