New Self Build House

Fleming Muir Architects

A new build house designed for a self build client to be sustainable with a low carbon footprint, highly environmentally efficient and with low future running costs. A structural insulated panel system(SIPS) provides a highly insulated shell with high air tightness values; a whole house ventilation system with heat recovery provides the main heating source; the house layout and window fenestration were orientated to maximise solar gain. The system can be reversed to provide cooling in summer.
