White Design has recently completed designs for a lakeside residence on a site in Dorset.
White Design worked with Progetic to model the performance of the design using the Passive House Design Package (PHPP).
Living more sustainably requires us to develop ways to live within our environmental means, especially in relation to our carbon footprint, maintain a healthy and comfortable quality of life and build strong cohesive communities.
• BaleHaus addresses these challenges and offers a straightforward and practical way to reduce our footprint on the earth.
• BaleHaus uses ModCell straw panels to provide a super-insulated home, made from locally available materials that are designed to be dismantled, re-used and recycled at the end of a typical 75+ year life. This super insulating system meets the PassivHaus specification for very low energy use together with optimum levels of internal comfort and high levels of air quality.
• BaleHaus is an entirely renewable home, made from beautiful, affordable and sustainable natural materials, that is cool in summer and warm in winter. It is intelligent in design as well as operation, and simply and effectively helps people reduce their CO2 emissions without undermining how they choose to live their lives.
• BaleHaus is a light, airy, spacious and comfortable home, which has a minimal impact on the environment. The designs are fully customisable, including options for external treatments, internal layouts and fittings. It can also accommodate a range of renewable and energy saving technologies to save money on utility bills.
• BaleHaus can provide you with a lasting beautiful home that protects the environment, reduces carbon emissions through lower energy use, encourages biodiversity and promotes safe, healthy family lifestyles and cohesive communities.
As such, BaleHaus is an enabler of 21st century living, dispelling the myth and popular misconception that one’s lifestyle must be compromised in order to achieve a low carbon existence. Welcome to the world of low carbon chic!
