Sheffield firm Peak Architects behind scheme

Sheffield firm Peak Architects has been given planning to convert a pre-war holiday cottage into a main residence with cutting-edge green credentials.

Its plans for the 1930s single-walled concrete structure at the village of Bamford, in the Peak District National Park, will extend and convert the existing building integrating Passivhaus principles, including high levels of insulation and triple glazing.

Planning authority is the Peak District National Park Authority.

Meanwhile, the firm has completed work turning a 1920s barn in the park into holiday accommodation. The scheme for a private client at Grindleford in the Hope Valley provides 11 ensuite bedrooms with a large open-plan communal living space, separate catering kitchen and cinema room.
