Silverheys is a new-build high specification private house in Hale Barns, Cheshire. The 7,000 sq ft house, designed by Reid Architects, is over four floors and includes a 14m swimming pool, steam room, gym and home office. The basement is visually connected to the other spaces in the house via a glass floor in the entrance hallway.
Our Client wanted a modern approach to design for living – both in the form of the house and the internal arrangement of spaces. Also that the building should allow seamless indoor/outdoor living.
The design also adopts a series of passive and active sustainability technologies including over-insulation, photovoltaic, ground source heat pump, green roof and rainwater harvesting. The building is designed to achieve level 4 under the Code For Sustainable Homes.
