New build developments
Winskill, Penrith, Cumbria

We got the opportunity to build our own home and two others on a green field site with spectacular open countryside views. The three high quality eco - friendly family homes were designed and constructed using traditional local materials. The homes were designed to reflect the vernacular agricultural building typology of the area and use these striking forms to enhance and maximise the views offered over the Eden Valley and Pennines. The three individual designs adopt a fabric first approach and use modern methods of construction including off site manufactured timber frame, sheep’s wool insulation and a Biomass district heating system using locally sourced wood chip.
