Solcer Architects were appointed to design this sustainable home after their success in designing the Solcer Energy Positive House near Bridgend. The Solcer concept involves having an excellent contextual design using a low carbon approach, providing an affordable, viable and comfortable environment to live in.
Planning permission was permitted for the property in August 2018 and Newydd employed Kingfisher Developments (Wales) Limited to construct this adapted bungalow. This project aims to deliver an energy positive affordable home in a rural location for householders with a lack of mobility requiring additional live in care. Appropriate sustainable design and technology will combine renewable energy supply, thermal and electrical energy storage and reduced energy demand in a replicable way. The proposed development aims to provide an affordable and replicable housing unit, incorporating a low carbon house design, integrating sustainable building technologies and small-scale renewable energy technologies to generate energy that will be used onsite by the housing occupants.
It aims to provide a high-quality living environment with very low energy bills to reduce fuel poverty.
