The Holden PassivHaus, Tullow
The Holden House is a 4 bedroom family home that achieved PassivHaus standards with the help of Gyproc and Isover Ireland products and support.
The Holden House was an innovative design project involving the construction of a highly energy efficient passive house. The 4 bedroom family home required high levels of technical skill and knowledge regarding the detail within the construction in order to optimise the energy efficiency of the house. The 298 square metre home required specific functions in its design: a bedroom area, a traditional farm house style kitchen, a large family room, and a large garage. Combining Gyproc and Isover products enabled the Holden House to achieve PassivHaus standards of high levels of both airtightness and thermal performance, while still meeting design specifications
