Tarn Moor’s brief was to create an environmentally
sustainable 3 bedroom home that utilises the views. Our client is a
climate change scientist and his environmental standpoint has steered
the project towards achieving an eco-friendly home. These goals have
driven the use of the glulam structure in addition to other
environmentally sustainable materials such as reusing demolition waste,
aggregate foundations, limecrete and local flint stone.
Tarn Moor is an environmentally sustainable family home for a climate scientist. A unique building that capitalises on the fantastic views, which are exaggerated by the butterfly roof that frames the building outlook. This building has utilised a range of sustainable building materials, thermal control and renewable electricity supply. Tarn Moor was a project derived to reduce carbon energy used in construction.
