What is Passivhaus?

'Passivhaus' or 'Passive house' originated in Germany and the name was coined by Dr. Wolfgang Feist. Passivhaus buildings provide comfort for the occupants while using very little energy for heating and cooling. No form of central or underfloor heating is required as the house is constructed in such a way that it remains at optimal temperature all year round - Find out more about how we built our show house here.

Watch the build...

The build shown in this video was deliberately staggered over twelve months to allow customers considering a self-build home to see each stage of this Passivhaus build.
