Paragraph 79 Pele Tower Passivhaus
A unique family home which takes inspiration from the historic fortified houses (Pele Towers) and solitary stone barns of the North East. This new build Passivhaus will be constructed using locally quarried natural stone, sustainably sourced timber, and solar PV roofing slates. Planning permission has been granted under Paragraph 79 of the National Planning Policy Framework to deliver a Near Zero Energy (NZEB) and certified Passivhaus. The house is on track to set a new standard for rural sustainable building design in Durham.
