12 Month Project
Low energy & Sustainable
True North Bespoke Kitchen

our role

The Eider is a beautiful three-bedroom, two storey family home situated in rural Northumberland, designed to meet the needs of a young family. This project is a low energy house with sustainability being at the forefront of many of the design choices. Built from a timber frame, True North spent a lot of time making this as airtight as possible. It is well insulated and its air source heat pump, MVHR system, triple -glazing and under floor heating will help it stay warm and comfortable all year round. The exterior of the house stands out with its shou-sugi ban cladding which is complemented with local stonework, in-keeping with the local village. Inside there is the striking bespoke kitchen finished in Richlite, a recycled paper material used on the door fronts and worktops. This was manufactured and fitted by True North Bespoke along with the oak window seats on the first floor which perfectly frame the stunning all-round views that this family will be able to enjoy for many years to come.
