New Build, Low Energy Family Home

The Malthouse Consultancy were instrumental in the design solutions for the structure, thermal mass, heating, cooling and ventilating this highly efficient new build family home.

Work undertaken:

Flint Barn was a bespoke new build home with a brief to make it as energy efficient as possible. The final product is a unique and stunning architectural design which includes huge 5m high all glass sliding doors and a double height atrium.

The construction solution Malthouse recommended was a Velox ICF system which has many benefits including very good insulation, great structural strength and high thermal mass.

The technology solutions include a Ground Source Heat Pump using 4 x 120m bore holes and a combination of underfloor heating and invisible air conditioning to provide comfort cooling.

The result is a house with incredibly low running costs and consistently high internal air quality and well controlled thermal conditions.

A home built truly for long-term enjoyment.
