Elsworth Show Home

The UK's first show home built to Passivhaus standard using the Kingspan TEK Building System. The contemporary show house joins four other stunning houses on the St Neots based site. This innovative concept created by HTA Design and Potton opened its doors in September 2016. If you're interested in building your home to Passivhaus standard then we have a range of articles following the build in our online Knowledge Library.

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.
