Homes for Berwickshire Housing Association

Swinton House Borders property

This prototypical pair of three bedroom semi-detached houses has been designed and built in Swinton, Berwickshire for Berwickshire Housing Association for rent at an affordable price.

Swinton Property

The appearance of a simple, archetypal form of a house has been achieved by detailing flush junctions between walls and roof pitches, recessed rainwater downpipes and discreet details to conceal cavity barriers.

Swinton Home

The houses set out to raise the standards of sustainable design in residential developments. Energy conservation methods employed include the collection of solar energy through a whole house ventilation and water heating system, glazed sunspaces, wind energy via small individual turbines and rain water harvesting.

Swinton House

The construction is lightweight and quick to erect. Well insulated breathable timber frame walls are clad in cement fibre slates and timber boarding.
