Clayland Architects designed two modern vernacular houses for a private client to Lifetime Homes criteria as well as Code for Sustainable Homes level 4. The client was able to achieve a house plan which was generous enough to allow for future adaption  and suitable for disabled occupants without compromising on the open plan and light design.

The concept of the dormer was used for creating a simple form which is used to emphasis the material qualities and craftsmanship employed in the design.  The houses are designed to high levels of sustainability using air source Heat Pumps, highly insulated building envelopes and wood burning stoves. The focus of the design is on being sustainable by creating spaces in which people want to be, and that last into the future. We believe this best  indicates the sustainability and success of a project.
