The 1980s property had remained untouched since it was built. The owner wanted to renew the property by upgrading the energy efficiency of the building. The property was stripped back to the bare structure and the thermal envelope of the building
was upgraded.

The design team worked together to develop the spatial design and to create some distinctive features including stunning views of York Minster. Fitting and fixtures are of a high specification throughout with the heating system using state-of-the-art electronic controls to minimise energy use. New windows and doors and the triple glazed roof lights have vastly improved the thermal efficiency of the building. The SAP/EPC rating is now B, up from the original E value.
