stock shelter

A sensitive conversion of a distinctive stock shelter and enclosing courtyard into a dwelling in proportion, form and material that respect the historical precedence of the site and the local character, whilst also using natural materials and sustainable technologies. New walls are built of insulated clay blocks with breathable lime render finishes. The dwelling is heated primarily by underfloor heating fed by a ground source heat pump which is supplemented with a wood-burner in the living area. Water heating is supplemented through a high performance evacuated tube solar thermal panel with electric immersion backup.
