Case Study

Building Stylish Sustainable Homes in Yorkshire

YORKSHIRE CASE STUDY of a passive house

Green Building Store is a local supplier of passive house products and supporter for energy efficient homes. Green Building Store designed and built a successful Yorkshire based development.

Green Building Store

LOCALLY SOURCED MATERIALS

The project is mostly faced with Yorkshire stone, mixed with timber cladding on certain aspects and a huge bay window.

PASSIVE HOUSE CONSTRUCTION

Built from block and stone with timber clad, the house is a shining example that passive homes can be versatile and built from materials that suit the region and developer.

SOUTH ORIENTATION

The house was originally passed for planning before consideration to make it an “eco-home”. With a few tweaks and re-orientated to the south, it was suitable to accommodate the passive house principles.

PASSIVE AWARDS

The Golcar project made it to the finals of the prestigious UK Passivhaus Awards 2016, the equivalent of the energy efficiency oscars!
