There’s more to this Yorkshire home than meets the eye – literally.

Sort Trae is a two-bedroom home and studio – and a Passivhaus to boot. By working with, rather than against, the landscape of the plot, this home manages to be sensitive to the surrounding area while still enjoying panoramic views of the rolling South Yorkshire countryside.

A former architect herself, the owner designed the project up to the planning stage. It shows. An entire wing of the building is dedicated to a weaving studio where light floods into the creative space through Norrsken S214A folding doors.

Our triple-glazed aluminium clad timber windows and doors provide Sort Trae with glazing that matches the outstanding thermal performance of the building’s fabric.

Our team was aware that this was to be a Passive House from the outset, so we supplied our P31A window profile for its excellent thermal performance and slim sightline. With S315A sliding doors on the ground floor providing near uninterrupted views of the surrounding countryside, light floods the home. The project also used our S309A framed entrance doors and P33A inward-opening windows.

Says project developer Terry Huggett of Norrsken products: “[They are] amazing windows that I can recommend to anyone looking for high performance, quality and style. I’ve used them on several projects and always had an amazing experience. My clients love them.”
