26 #passivhaus homes under construction in Bedminster, Bristol

Urbis Development's 26-home scheme, on the site of the redundant Bingo venue in Bedminster, is aiming for Passivhaus Standard. Designed by Bristol architecture practice Origin 3 Studio, the development is currently under construction and includes 9 apartments and 17 houses complete with off-street parking. Hot water will be generated from solar panels with no need for gas connections into the properties. Residents should see reductions in their utility bills compared with conventional properties.
