Oliver’s Ridge House

This bespoke family home set into hillside used Passive House principles to provide low maintenance and energy efficient living.

A significant engineering challenge included supporting a stone covered roof with precast concrete parapets which overhangs well beyond the enclosed structure below, while also supporting an external balcony.

Other challenges Hadleys overcame included a large basement garage set under a mixture of lawn, decking and bedrooms, along with scrutinising every engineering detail to ensure the structure did not compromise either the architectural intent nor energy efficiency.
