Larch Corner

Larch Corner

From its structure to its insulation, its cladding to its light fittings almost every fibre of this contemporary 3-bedroom single storey home has its origins in sustainably sourced timber – not only reducing emissions during processing and manufacture but curtailing carbon emissions during use. A certified Passivhaus accompanied by a 9.3 kWp photovoltaic array the house achieves Zero Carbon status.
As a celebration of the best modern timber engineering techniques, Larch Corner is a timber lover’s paradise that is nestled into the heart of the English countryside. In a time of climate breakdown, it not only shows how environmental damage can be minimised but offers a clear indication of how it can contribute to more restorative actions, whilst letting the human spirit soar.
