Passivhaus 27-unit development site

This project is a competition, in which Bridge Architects were shortlisted, for the design of a 27-unit Passivhaus scheme in Manchester. The design is a holistic approach encompassing many aspects of sustainable living including allotment and livestock areas, childrens play areas and a central community centre, along with predominantly south facing housing units using the 'fabric-first' certified Passivhaus approach.

The project has now been realised by First Step under the name ‘Chorlton Villas’.
