PAD Studio has submitted plans for a highly sustainable, five-bedroom house set within a private estate in rural Cobham, Surrey
The triple-glazed, super-insulated 800m² home, featuring a brick base and an upper storey of lightly charred Accoya, has been designed for an international family with three young children.
The house features an open-plan living area, indoor sports room, spa-inspired bathrooms, an outside kitchen, external terraces and a self-contained annexe and games room.
The house will be super-insulated, airtight (with MVHR), triple glazing throughout and sedum roofs.
Subject to planning work could start on site later this year.

The design is orientated towards views of nearby woodland and designed to minimise impact to the existing trees on the site. The house will be super-insulated, airtight (with MVHR), triple glazed throughout and with sedum roofs.
The historic buildings in the older part of Cobham are largely built from brick which is referenced in the home’s masonry base. The upper storey of lightly charred Accoya has been selected both for longevity and to weather slowly and gracefully over time.
There are few overtly contemporary new buildings in Cobham and we hope that, while contrasting with its neo-classical neighbours, the new home will help to raise design standards in the area and raise awareness of sustainable contemporary architecture.
