Publication : CarbonLite Standards on Eco-renovation

In summer 2007, AECB members, Simmonds Mills Architects began design work on Grove Cottage which was built as a detached house in 1869 for a railway carriage inspector on a strip of development land alongside the rail route from Hereford to South Wales. Responding to a brief that required additional bedroom space, more practical domestic working and storage space and a better relationship between the habitable spaces and the garden to the east.

This article, by Andy Simmonds (co-owner of the cottage and partner in Simmonds Mills), and Alan Clarke (services design) concentrates mainly on the refurbishment elements of the project.
