As you might be aware from our previous blog, the team in Cygnum Timber Frame are incredibly proud to be part of the The Greenest Building in Europe, The Enterprise Center at the University of East Anglia. 100% of the Timber Frame has been engineered, manufactured and erected by Cygnum. The project is due for completion in May 2015. Watch this informative short film which gives you an idea how ground breaking the build is in terms of BREEAM and Passivhaus standards.
This impeccable 3000 sq ft Cygnum built home recently came on to the market in Clonakilty, Co Cork. The property known locally as Castleview boasts an idyllic riverside setting. The build was very much a collaboration with it’s current owner and Cygnum, inspired by the world-renowned designer Philippe Starck.
The finished product was so impressive it featured on RTÉ’s House Hunters, along with a slew of interior, construction and design magazines.
Check out this link to the recent feature in the Irish Examiner for more details.
Every effort was taken by CBA Architects to utilise natural light in this house. Floor to ceiling windows on south, east and west elevations creates light filled living spaces. A primary of the design was to create a living space that was both energy efficient and contemporary. Cygnum’s Precision250® wall system enabled the build to reach an A rated status.
