Moonshine is a house built in 1786 near Bath, UK, that was originally a schoolhouse for a large country house nearby, and extended originally in 2002 by Invisible Studio as one of the practice’s first buildings. Practice principal Piers Taylor has lived in the house with his family since 2002, and in the intervening period built various other projects including the practice’s studio in the 100 acre woodland that surrounds the house and which Taylor manages alongside practice.Save this picture!© Jim StephensonTaylor self built the original extension having to carry everything 600 metres along a steep woodland track before the house had vehicular access. The original house won the AJ Small Projects award soon after it was completed. Other than Taylor desired to banish the demons of his youth, and move on from the house he had designed as a young architect, in the intervening years, much has changed in terms of knowledge insulation and airtightness, and with a desire to future proof the house and make it as low energy as possible, Taylor has recently retrofitted the house to achieve exceptional levels of insulation, airtightness and autonomy.Save this picture!© Jim StephensonSave this picture!PlansSave this picture!© Jim StephensonThis involved leaving the structural timber frame but removing and replacing floors, walls, roof and glazing. The house was extensively thermally modelled, and glazing reduced to avoid heat loss. A biomass boiler fed from waste timber from the surrounding woodland provides heat and hot water when needed, and there is electric infloor heating linked to off-grid photovoltaics on the roof with a battery back up.Save this picture!© Jim StephensonProject gallerySee allShow lessGusto 501 Restaurant / PartisansSelected ProjectsBroissin Toreo Offices / BROISSINSelected Projects Share “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Photographs:  Jim Stephenson Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project United Kingdom Projectscenter_img Area:  600 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Photographs Save this picture!© Jim Stephenson+ 32Curated by María Francisca González Share Architects: Invisible Studio Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Moonshine Retrofit House / Invisible StudioSave this projectSaveMoonshine Retrofit House / Invisible Studio 2002 Year:  CopyAbout this officeInvisible StudioOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationInterior DesignResidential InteriorsHouse InteriorsUnited KingdomPublished on October 27, 2020Cite: “Moonshine Retrofit House / Invisible Studio” 27 Oct 2020.
