The Carrowbreck Meadow development in Norwich is one of the first Passivhaus certified residential projects in the area. To help achieve this, Porotherm; Wienerberger’s innovative clay block walling system, was specified.
The Carrowbreck Meadow design combines local ‘barn’ vernacular with a contemporary twist and incorporates a simple black and white palette. The homes were designed to sit comfortably in their woodland setting and were positioned to take advantage of solar energy throughout the seasons.
Fourteen new dwellings were developed over 12 months - 8 detached and 6 semidetached - which were designed using the Passivhaus principles to build houses with cost effective, long term energy performance.
