Within these four walls.
Built to modern housing standards, our multi layered walls are made from ecologically sound SIPS and are clad in naturally durable, western red cedar which is fully sustainable and can be left untreated for many years due to its natural oils.
One of Cedar’s most valuable characteristics is its well known high resistance to decay, it can provide a lifespan of over 90 years.
We offer various options for exterior and interior finished and also do acoustic specification if required. In short, our walls not only look good, they keep the outside out and the inside in. Permanently.
Green in every sense.
Naturally we’re talking about our optional planted green roof. Ultra low maintenance organic plants not only reduce visual impact, they prolong the lifespan of the roof, improve insulation and ensure the area taken by your Ecospace™ building continues to give something back to the environment. And no, you don’t need to mow them.
Alternatively, our contemporary timber clad roof is a beautiful continuation of our wall finish.
A view with some room.
Windows are like walls you can see through, meaning they need to be just as well insulated. That’s why we use high performance wood windows.
The glazing system has a U-Value of 1.1w/m2k.
High security, insurance-approved locking systems are also included within the specification.
Oh, and our substantial sliding glazing systems provide a seamless relationship to the exterior.
And you thought they were just windows.
Minimalist & natural finishes
There are other options of interior wall & ceiling finishes in addition to the standard birchwood such as refreshingly white washed timber panels, orientated strand board for a more industrial feel, or white painted gypsum plasterboard for a minimalist look. It’s really up to you.
Flooring is no simple matter and naturally, something environmentally-friendly is essential. That’s why we use recyclable floorings. They’re made from wear-resistant rubber, naturally sourced minerals; eco-compatible colour pigments and come in a range of modern colour options. And, as they fit so seamlessly against the internal birch walls, you could say they’re flawless. Alternatively you may prefer our optional engineered oak flooring as a continuation of the natural finishes.
The latest technology, naturally.
In terms of technology, power points, internet points and low energy lighting are all provided in every Ecospace® building. In terms of heating, due to their high performance insulation, Ecospaces don’t need much. Of course, we provide a low energy Scandinavian under-floor heating system with a digital timer so you can program your heating for any time you like.
Alternatively there are optional air-sourced heat pumps, log burning or bio-mass stoves. On larger scale projects, ground-source heat pumps are also options.
In short, it’s fair to say that Ecospace buildings keep you warm, not the planet.
