Cliff Top House (Para 55). Designed by Hawkes Architecture, this energy efficient grand design, follows passive house principles.

Para 55  New Build

Located 70m from the edge of the country, adjacent to arguably the most iconic defining characteristic of the British Isles, 'The White Cliffs of Dover', this stunning new Para 55 dwelling was allowed at Appeal in July 2017. The site is within the Kent Downs AONB, Heritage Coast and is immediately adjacent to the Saxon Shore Way SSSI. The principal strategy was to stitch together the site and the passive house into the calcareous grasslands and chalky cliff tops. The curved building provides south facing amenity space and allows seascape views out to both the east and west. Along the inside of the internal curve facade, an integrated ‘Solar Wall’ will feed warm air into the MVHR system, thus reducing the heating requirements of the house.
