Windrose replaces a former lightweight timber framed bungalow located in the heart of a conservation area in the traditional Oxfordshire village of Longworth. Our clients aspired to a traditional stone built house but with a contemporary twist.
The design is particularly sensitive to its setting and incorporates low energy technology to reduce heating costs and electrical consumption.
A ground source heat pump is installed together with rainwater harvesting. Natural materials are used throughout to ensure low embodied carbon within the structure of the house.
