Hatteringill

Lorton
Cumbria

This new build house occupies a prominent position in the quiet village of Lorton. The site was part of the garden to a large property next door. Although centrally located within the village, it is also open to the Buttermere valley at the back. Very much a contemporary build, we felt it important that the house responded to its location. The use of reclaimed slate and larch cladding will weather to grey over time while the detailing of the building picks up on typical details of a north lakes cottage with its simple clipped eaves .

Particular attention was paid to the reduction of air leakage and high levels of insulation. Along with triple glaze windows, air source heat pump for the heating and hot water, photovoltaics and mechanical ventilation with heat recovery, this energy efficient home achieved an AA rating.
