Modern English House | Charred House | Suffolk | England | Tate Harmer

The varied roof profile, charred larch cladding and sedum roof provide a ‘pared back’ and sculptural interpretation of this aesthetic. Super-insulation, triple glazing and mechanical ventilation heat recovery provide a very energy efficient building, whilst an air source heat pump and solar thermal panels ensure that there is a renewable heat source.......more
