Chelsea double storey extension

Conversion of a little used balcony into a small breakfast area to be connected with the kitchen area at the back of the house.
The exsting conservatory-style ground floor extension was removed and replaced with slim sliding glass doors to match with the new glazing of the kitchen floor above. A fully glazed sylight further increases daylight levels.
Other works included new oak timber flooring throughout the ground floor, a new Poggenpohl kitchen as well as new flooring to downstairs study and decoration works in the stairwell.

The project was completed in late 2016

The Hazlemere house

The brief is to build a low energy timber frame house with a tight budget to serve as accommodation for a family of three.
The initial aim of achieving the Passive house criteria had to be scaled back to the 'PHI Low Energy Building Standard' due to various factors, mainly the heavily shaded plot, unfavourable envelope/treated floor ratio and large amount of glazing the client was keen of implementing due to the beautiful woodland around the house.
The structure itself will have low embodied energy by using an I-stud timber frame structure and cellulose infill insulation. The house will be build with a suspended floor on micropiles reducing its impact on the ground to the absolute minimum.
Initial design and planning by Bere Architects.

The house is currently under construction.

The Hove house

Passive House

The brief was to build a large Passive House in timber frame construction for a family of four including renewable energy sources (PV, solar hot thermal and wood burning stove combined with large heat storage).
Denhof Design worked for the main contractor ( and closely coordinated works with Jim Miller Architects and the client.
The aim was to insure the building initially designed by a non-passive house architect would achieve the Passive House standard.
The energy concept includes MVHR, PV panels, solar hot thermal, wood burning stove plus a large thermal heat store designed by Philip Proffit (nakedhouse).
The structure itself will have low embodied energy by using a solid timber frame structure with mineral wool infill insulation. The concrete slab of the house is build onto Isoquick insulation wrapping around the footing.

The project was completed in late 2017.
