Previous Projects

Eco-Friendly Home

In 2011 we were commissioned to build a low-energy home using traditional (Passivhaus) construction techniques. This is something that is rarely seen in this country, and thus, it’s an excellent achievement.

The brief was to achieve air tightness five times greater than standard building regulations at 1CM3 of air loss per hour. To achieve this, meticulous attention to detail and rigorous design construction were required, all of which were steered toward principles developed by the Passivhaus Institute in Germany.

Careful detail was made to the usual vulnerable areas around window and door openings, cold bridging, and the roof construction. This is where special air tightness membranes and tapes were used to eliminate air loss. The heat losses of this building are reduced so much that it hardly needs any heating at all. The final results were staggering, achieving an air loss of 0.84 CM3 per hour. This has enabled our client to achieve a contribution to saving global warming in reducing their energy consumption. The benefit is very low energy bills comparable to a small dwelling.

A Curved Home

In 2014, DLP Associates was commissioned to build a curved house called Incurvo to Passivhaus Standards. This was an even greater achievement considering the curved design of the building. The building is well-detailed:

  • Window frames and internal blind tracks are recessed cleanly into wall reveals, meaning there is no intrusion or obstruction of view.
  • Handmade bricks are used so that they give a softer-edged appearance to the curves along with recessed mortar joints to emphasise the brick and to create shadow and texture.
  • The play in the rhythm of the vertical joints of the zinc cladding which intensifies as it goes around a curve. This may just be down to buildability, but the justification of referencing music paper (the owners are keen musicians) seemed plausible and playful enough.

Although it could be considered a large house, the curved walls and windows give an intimate feel to each of the internal spaces and rooms that are created within its curvaceous plan. This offers a domesticity which feels modest in scale. Each room is also individually styled so that the owners’ personality comes through and makes the property feel lived-in and loved. Standing in front of the curved windows gave a sense of being closer to nature with increased panoramic views and an excellent field of vision.
