Van Midden House

The Van Midden house is at the Lembas Organics farm at the Bridge of Muchalls, Stonehaven. It is a very low energy house due to high levels of insulation and the use of timber I beams to reduce thermal bridging. The external rain screen is Sitka spruce with an organic paint finish.

The central south facing glazing to the living area contributes to the passive solar design. One of the most interesting aspects of the building is the emphasis on affordability which has been achieved by the use of economic building materials which are often more associated with agricultural buildings. (Certainly in the UK – but this type of domestic design is quite common in much of Scandinavia).
