Steep Wedge Passive House
Certified passive house built within a restricted and challenging site
An energy efficient family home, built on a challenging suburb sloping site with restricted way leaves. Customer and architect Garth Sullivan of Simply Architecture, had an ambitious task to design and build his new family home in Cork. As a Passive House enthusiast, it was important that his new home would meet these rigorous energy efficient standard.
With the bar set quite high, Gareth engaged ECO at a very early stage of the project design, to collaborate and share as much design detail at the beginning, to ensure the high standards could be achieved. The ECO 220 Passive wall systems provided Gareth with the peace of mind that the building envelope would meet the exceptional standards with ease. The Passive House Certified light weight timber frame wall system was ideal for working on the changeling site, allowing our structure to be installed with precision on a very confined site.
