This wonderful Stommel Haus home built in Aberdeenshire is a bespoke home of 216 m² living space. It has an open gallery where from the dining table the owners can look into the vaulted ceiling above at about 7.5 m height.
The house is fitted with state-of-the-art Solar Ice heating, which is a heat pump using the ambient heat and solar
thermic energy and also the energy in an underground water tank and the latent energy in ice. With underfloor heating throughout the house, this house overlooking the rolling Aberdeenshire hills
is very warm and comfortable.
Because of its beauty and extraordinary energy efficiency, the house got a lot of publicity. It won the "CRL Venturous Build" Award and - amongst other - was described in an article at the iBuild magazine.
The SAP rating of the house indicates that the house produces more energy than it consumes and after living in it for several months, our clients already got the first amount of money back from their energy company.
This house is the first of its kind with the Viessmann "Solar Ice" Heating. The system uses a ice store which uses ice to heat and cool a house. Have a look at the Youtube video for more information on how it works and read the Press Release.
