Ford House, Low Energy Home by Simon Winstaneley Architects

January 12, 2016 Contemporary House Design


Ford house was built with very low energy building clad in black zinc sheeting. The house comprises three distinct elements – main living accommodation, studio/guest wing, and garage. Designed by Simon Winstaneley Architects in contemporary design. The use of black cladding is designed to echo the sheet metal clad agricultural barns nearby and to be visually recessive. Some windows are picked out in strong acid colors to contrast with the black zinc. The house is insulated to Passive House Standards and is heated using geothermal heat pump, solar panels and a whole house heat recovery ventilation system.
