Gresford Architects

The Deerings (with Nicolas Tye Architects)

The Deerings, a new build modernist certified Passivhaus, is a brave addition to a traditional suburban street scene in Harpenden, Hertfordshire. This striking five-bedroom home, built by Passivhaus experts Gresford Architects, acts as a sympathetic response to its urban setting and sits unobtrusively alongside its more traditional neighbouring properties. This simple two storey rectangular form is on the cutting edge of sustainable design, constructed utilising modern and innovative methods and built with family living in mind.
