An extensive remodelling and retrofit of an existing 20th century family house nestled into a steeply sloping hillside outside Bath

The project extends and reorganises a 1930s house to update the accomodation for 21st Century living. The house is to be extensively remodelled and it its building fabric upgraded to substantially improve the environmental performance of the dwelling and reduce building emissions in use.

The project continues to develop our retrofit research and methodologies first employed at Prospect House twelve years previously.

A series of strategic interventions will open the house to its extensive garden, increase daylighting and exploit the long range panoramic views.

The house is currently being developed towards construction and is due to be completed in 2022.
