23A The Green, Acomb

Client/Developer: Owners
Architect/Designer: Mass Architecture
Builder: Kocyk Construction

 

The brief was to design a new house within a walled garden next to a prominent three-storey period house on Acomb Green located within the Conservation Area. The house was set back to leave space for the mature trees to the rear and the site shape was significant in developing the plan layout. The new house draws strong material references from No. 23, by using red brick with buff brick edging, and the natural zinc ties in with the colour and texture of the roof slates.

The house has a super-insulated external construction aiming to meet the AECB Silver Standard, which equates to a 75% reduction in energy costs compared to a new house to current building regulations.
