We love a challenge. And Holder Road certainly gave us that. Our mission was to build a two storey, eco-friendly home on a narrow site with the front of the property facing north. Being near the ocean we also had to give careful consideration to cross-flow ventilation and make sure that hot air from the home could be easily and effectively released.
The orientation at Holder Road was definitely a challenge. It severely restricted our opportunity to get northern light to the living areas. However, our innovative design team were able to come up with a stunning courtyard that would open up the space and resolve the problem. It has become a key feature of the home rather than being something we had to compromise.
