This was a community led project by DCH in conjunction with Devonport Land Community Trust (DCLT) who formed a partnership to instigate a new housing project with very high aspirations, providing low cost, energy efficient housing.
- These innovative Code 5 houses use Green Guide A+ rated materials. The elevations are clad using cedar shingles and weatherboarding. Limited areas of render provide a palette that suits its leafy context.
- The orientation of the buildings takes advantage of solar gain to help reduce the load on the heating system.
- “The site is within a Conservation Area and the end result reflects well on the designer’s ability to produce a scheme that is innovative and contemporary whilst being sensitive to its surrounding context.”
- The houses have met many high design standards including the Building for Life criteria, Lifetime Homes and Secured By Design.
