Seven’s proposed scheme incorporated many Passivhaus principles, featuring natural insulation and good levels of air-tightness, and maximising solar gains through orientation. The design incorporated space heating via a ground source heat pump, exhaust air source heat exchange and solar water panels in addition to energy efficient lighting, low water-use fittings and rainwater harvesting
