Architectural Draughting & Design

Exeter Street

AP Design were commissioned to design and manage the construction of an energy efficient house in Merivale. The house is designed to maximise the sun both in the morning and afternoon creating a heat trap. The whole process is reversible in summer to get cross ventilation and chimney effect to remove surplus heat. Through the winter of 2012 the clients almost never used their heat pump relying on the solar principles of the house.
