Carrstone Passivhaus and Hale Road open days.
November 10, 2017 @ 10:00 am - November 11, 2017 @ 5:00 pm
AECB MK has been a little quiet for the last few months so we thought we’d take the opportunity of the Passivhaus Open Days to arrange a get together. The Passivhaus Open Days run each November as a way to allow a first-hand experience of the benefits of this way of living, to feel the comfortable temperatures, to hear (or not hear) how quiet the MVHR really is and to speak with people who live there. This year the award winning Passivhaus Plus, Carrstone will be opening it’s doors again and Hale Road, will be open to the public for the first time.

Designed to the Passivhaus standard this home replaces an old unloved bungalow on the same site. The site is nestled between two bungalows and is near to a conservation area and area of outstanding national beauty. The design for this project required achieving a sensitive balance between the clients space requirements whilst respecting the lower ridge heights of the neighbours and the traditional street scene.
This project demonstrates that Passivhaus don’t have to look ultra modern. The flat topped hipped roof sensitively masks the presence of PV’s whilst allowing the home to site comfortably next to it’s neighbors.
As this project is currently onsite a tour gives the opportunity to see the workings of a Passivhaus. As the project is still a live building site we are limited to the single tour and adults only.
