The multi award-winning Saffron Heath in Leicester is the UK’s largest affordable Passivhaus scheme, regenerating a former allotment site into a £7m eco-home community. All the 68 homes are outstandingly sustainable, featuring high levels of insulation, controlled ventilation and increased glazing, and to connect with the surrounding environment, the design includes a permaculture farm, flower meadow and open green space. The winner of several national awards and media coverage, Saffron Heath was cited by the Passivhaus Trust and Sustainable Cities Collective as an exemplar scheme.
