Dormont Park is a development of 8 low energy homes in rural South Scotland. Built to PassivHaus standards, they are so airtight and energy efficient that the entire house can be heated with just one small radiator.
Here you can see the exterior of the semi-detached houses, which are clad with larch and pink render.
The project has been lifechanging for some of the tenants, who found the improved air quality of a Passivhaus resolved long standing respiratory health issues. Others who had been struggling with fuel poverty in older rentals found the low heating costs meant they now had much more disposable income to improve their quality of life.
