For this project, PHP were commissioned to develop a bespoke new build house within a small housing development in Seaham. Governed by a strict design code, we were tasked with creating 25 nr. self-build plots to provide a luxury development with a series of contemporary dwellings.
The generous plot, coupled with flexible client brief and budget, allowed for the design of a large three-storey dwelling. With 4 nr. ensuite bedrooms, a home cinema room, office, gym, and connection to a tiered landscaped garden, this made for a spectacular design opportunity.
Further, the property was detailed to surpass U-values for building regulations and airtightness and to be powered largely off-grid. To achieve this, we paired a PV array and battery storage system with full Mechanical Heat Recovery Ventilation (MHRV) system to minimise expenditure for mains electricity.
