Low energy renovation & extension, Rottingdean
Low energy renovation of a bungalow in Rottingdean including loft conversion and side extension. The existing roof was transformed by stripping back to the frame to utilise all internal space, adding deep rafters alongside the existing to super insulate with 300mm of Warmcell (cellulose insulation). High performance airtightness, windtightness and triple glazed rooflights complete the building envelope.
Roof lights have been located to maximise solar gain and bring light into the stairwell and make the most of the views to the sea and downs. The extension has a similar specification with a garden room and the existing ground floor has been extensively remodelled to improve every space in the house.
Overall significant energy savings and dramatically improved comfort for decades to come.
