This derelict single-storey building in Bristol was demolished and replaced with a two-storey mid-terrace café and creative community space: Goldfinch Create & Play.

The goal was to create a simple, practical studio space for running creative courses for children, and a complementary family café, for up to 60 people. At the end of the day art materials are tidied away to allow the studio space to be used for other activities such as yoga classes.

Goldfinch required the building to achieve the Passivhaus Classic standard (certification pending), which meant high levels of insulation, airtightness, and filtered ventilation.

Join different members of the project team as they talk you through the build: Mark Finney, Director, SEB + FIN Architects; Beth Williams, Structural Engineer and Certified PassivHaus Designer, Build Collective; and Ben East, Director, Earthwise Construction
