This house by BROWN + BROWN architects from Aberdeen does not need central heating as it is very ait-tight and equipped with an MVHR system – relying on the solar gain from the large Idealcombi windows, which will heat the house all year.

In the Cairngorm National Park along the river Don you will find this low-cost, energy efficient building with large south facing Idealcombi Futura+ contemporary windows and sliding doors.

Products used:

Large Futura+ sliding doors toward south with a overhanging roof for shade in the summer. Combined with the fixed lights to the north the raked windows following the roof provide plenty of light to this contemporary house.

Architect: BROWN + BROWN
