The Muse Passive House bere:architects

Justin Bere's experimental self-build home has now reverted to private use since the office moved out in August 2012. The project started on site in the year 2000 (and work is still ongoing) with all the main passivhaus attributes of super-insulated walls, triple glazed windows, heat recovery ventilation, design for air tightness and design against cold bridging. When Wolfgang Feist first visited the Muse in 2009 and saw the monitoring results, he declared that it should be certified as a UK pioneer passivhaus.

We're all set up in the new passivhaus office and amazingly the network and phones are up and running on day 1! However there is still quite a lot to do to settle in and unpack all the boxes, and we have a major deadline for Wednesday midday, so please bear with us for a few days.
