Passivhaus New Build

Location, location, location. This new build Passivhaus is situated in the heart of St Leonard’s, probably the most exclusive part of central Exeter. Surrounded by large period houses, tucked away from the bustling road, this beautiful bungalow is the retirement home that ticks all the boxes: convenient location, level living, privacy, garden and oh, yes, super eco friendly too!

The Project

The clients bought a building plot in a sought after area of Exeter and wanted to create a sustainable, eco friendly home for their retirement. The level design incorporates three bedrooms (one en-suite), one bathroom, kitchen and open plan living/dining area with vaulted ceilings. On the outside there is a large garden, a private garden off the master suite, a garage and an art studio. 

The bungalow was designed by Gale & Snowden Architects, who also designed two previous Passivhaus projects we worked on.
