Replacement Dwelling in Gorran Haven
Designed by Martin at his previous practice in Bodmin as a peaceful retirement retreat, Ecofab were commissioned to undertake all building works and project management. The design maximises passive solar gains from the South which is to the rear of the building. This aspect enjoys the full beauty of the woodland garden and small stream which intersects the property.
Internally, the spaces open plan and split-level with the lounge cantilevering over the stream. The building is super insulated with sheep’s wool within a spaced frame partly constructed using Ecofab panels and partly stick built. 4 kilowatts of photovoltaics, an air source heat pump and solar thermal panels complement the efficient building design fabric producing a highly efficient building overall with very low running costs.
