Wheelhaus

Located on the hills overlooking Whitby, Wheelhaus is a certified Passive House designed by VIA architecture. The four-bedroom multi-generational home sits on a long section, with its narrowest boundary to the north. This required careful consideration of form and window placement, to optimise daylight and solar heat gain, and take advantage of the site’s stunning northerly views. These design goals are achieved through dynamic facade angles, which also reflect the contours of the Whitby landscape. Evoking a rocky outcrop on the hillside, the house uses a light grey exterior aluminium cladding. Interior finishes, in neutral colours and materials, include recycled timber flooring and timber-alu joinery. Large sliding doors connect the living space with a generous covered deck area, continuing the home’s visual and physical connections to its surroundings. Build by North Face Construction. Completed May 2021
