Hemploe View is a unique, bespoke home with panoramic views towards the Hemploe Hills. It uses good quality, natural materials and incorporates a number of sustainable energy systems.
Replacing an existing house, the design created a building which relates more comfortably to the landscape and is appropriate to its setting in terms of mass and volume.
Hemploe View has a two storey bedroom wing containing the master bedroom suite at first floor level, with access to a south facing balcony, and an attached single storey wing with open plan kitchen, dining and living spaces.
The south-facing glazing and a roof lantern provide passive solar gain and natural daylight to the interior, and the construction form provides high thermal and acoustic efficiency by the careful choice of materials. These include a hand crafted structural timber frame of Douglas Fir, and wide, single-skin, extruded, precision-engineered clay block walls.
The materials and structure meant low-carbon manufacturing with long term sustainability. The building has a projected life of more than 150 years with minimal maintenance.
The property’s renewable energy systems include the use of grey water harvesting, a ground source heat pump and solar evacuated tubes, together with a sustainable surface water drainage system.
