Superior Solar Management in Rural Oxfordshire

Superior Solar Management in Rural Oxfordshire

Tucked away on a modern development in rural Oxfordshire is this stunning timber frame house surrounded by beautiful views over open fields beyond.

The design of this new-build property floods the back of the house with light thanks to its use of glazing across a large set of apexed windows, bifold doors and a single door. These doors open out to an outdoor seating area overlooking the landscaped garden, perfect for warm summer evenings.

However, as this property has a west-facing garden, a solution for excessive heat build and harsh solar glare was required. This is particularly important for taking control of hot, sticky summer days and finding your perfect level of comfort.

Three Power Screens were recessed above the large bifold door, single door, and set of windows across the open-plan kitchen/diner. Suntex 80 in grey was the chosen mesh – providing superior solar management as well as insect protection and privacy.

We worked directly with the builders at Greencore Construction for this project to design pocket spaces for the heads of the screens. Greencore are an Oxford-based developer with sustainability at heart. They design and build low-carbon, high-performance homes using natural materials.

Thanks to the Power Screens, the owners now have greater control over the heat build and solar glare that enters their home. A welcome summer breeze can trickle into the house whilst keeping the bugs outside – helping the owners save on air conditioning costs and enjoy their indoor and outdoor living areas to the max.
