Granit developed this entry for the ‘Sunday Times Britain’s Future Home Competition 2014’. An exciting contemporary design with a strong foundation in sustainable building, the ‘Route Haus’ has given us a fantastic opportunity to show off our design skills and develop our understanding of the passivhaus standard.
The brief for the competition provided a great challenge; to achieve a passivhaus certifiable building whilst designing an exciting and family friendly holiday home.
The Route Haus is a 4 bed 190m2 lakeside eco-house designed in conjunction with passivhaus certified consultant Richard Bendy of Natural Action. It integrates the latest technology with the passivhaus’ ‘fabric first’ design approach.
