A sustainable and contemporary five-bedroom family home in Folkestone, Kent. The interior layout is based on an open plan arrangement allowing seamless flow through the living spaces.
The house has a modern, central built-in wood burner and includes a deep bore ground source heat pump. Close attention had to be given to the specification of the sanitary and brass ware items for the four double en-suite bathrooms to ensure that that the house would achieve a BRE Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4, without compromising on functionality, style and design. In 2011 Northbury was commended and awarded the RIBA Downland Prize.
