Barnacre, Preston – Concept
Segment: Residential – 2009
A proposed Single Dwelling Development within a dis-used former reservoir site – approx. £1.5million
Invitation only Competition entry for new large private house development for Bishopsrock Property. The scheme provides a luxurious ‘carbon neutral’ house to act as an exemplar of sustainablility.
The proposal provided ‘living’ and ‘work/play’ functions as two interlocking shapes around a central courtyard which gives protected outdoor space and sun penetration to depth of plan.
Key sustainability strategies included green roof construction with integrated photo-voltaic panels, grey water recycling / water collection and a double skin façade to internal courtyard, forming solar chimney linked to heat recovery system.
