Chithurst Monastery

Chithurst Monastery


• This is the construction of a purpose-made utility building, incorporating ablutions and quiet meditation space as a standalone building, within the grounds of an established Buddhist Monastery.
• A high-quality, low-energy building, constructed of a traditional heavy hand-crafted oak frame.
• Robust energy-efficient heating system utilising an existing and established wood-fired heat source in conjunction with underfloor heating and discrete panel radiators coordinated carefully with the building construction.
• Energy-efficient heat recovery ventilation, providing generous fresh air supply to the showers and ablutions.
• Discretely installed photovoltaic installation to minimise use of imported electricity and to export excess generated power to the rest of the Monastery.
• Discrete and energy-efficient lighting, carefully coordinated with the building finishes.
