Private House Newnham

This Grade II Listed building is one of the two international style houses designed by Marshall Sisson in Cambridge in the 1930s and is a large detached villa designed for an academic family in Newnham.

The project involved repair and conservation of the building and external retrofit of insulation. The external fabric was in poor condition with modern repairs not performing well and modern paint exacerbating the harm.

An energy report was commissioned to support the conservation strategy to replace single glazed windows with double glazed units and to install 100mm external wood fibre insulation with rough cast lime render to external walls.
