Set at the foot of a wooded hill Dundon Passivhaus is designed to take best advantage of fantastic views across the Somerset levels. Different rooms relate directly to distinct areas of the garden creating an experiential richness that extends the domain of the interior into the surrounding landscape. The house has been built to Passivhaus standard achieving very high levels of insulation and air-tightness. Green oak posts support the roof, tied back to the main timber-framed structure which is also clad in green oak that will patinate and weather over time. Internally the rooms are lined in planed oak or painted plywood, a more refined version of the characterful external cladding.


Our Oak planks have been used for flooring and wall cladding throughout.
