PPS 7 New Build
Designed by architect Richard Hawkes, Crossway features the UK's only timbrel vaulted parabolic arch. This impressive structure was built using 26,000 hand-made clay tiles and construction was completed during 2008. Now a celebrated landmark in the Kentish countryside, Crossway has been nominated for numerous awards and has achieved Passivhaus certification, testament to its clever design.
Where possible, this sustainably built dwelling was constructed entirely from locally sourced eco-friendly materials and has since achieved an A+ EPC rating, thanks to its use of renewable technology and its clever energy efficient passive solar design.
Planning consent for this unique project was granted under 'Planning Policy Statement Seven' (PPS 7) and the property is known to be one of Kevin McCloud's favourite buildings, after it featured on C4's long running series Grand Designs.
