Winton Road

Our client wanted to undertake a new build using Modern Methods of Construction, whilst emulating the Victorian period properties in the local area. The house is constructed from ICF; Insulated Concrete Forms, which are large modular panels, built to minimise time on site and maximise energy efficiency. 

This structure was then clad in traditional “Bowdon” yellow bricks, with bird’s beak brick course details, carved stonework, timber eaves and fascias to create a welcoming family home with elegant proportions.


This Arts and Craft style property was designed with a 21st century focus on renewable and low carbon energy. Sustainability and efficiency were prominent in the design brief, and this was achieved with the installation of an air source heat pump and solar thermal, a heat recovery system, renewable power and storage, plus electric vehicle charging points.
