Linear brick wall conceals earthy and tactile interiors of Devon Passivhaus

A linear red-brick wall obscures the textured interiors and art-filled courtyard hidden inside McLean Quinlan’s low-rise Passivhaus home in Devon, UK.

The energy-efficient dwelling, aptly named Devon Passivhaus, nestles into a sloped walled garden that was once owned by an old English country house that fell into a state of disrepair.

In an effort to celebrate and give prominence to this rural setting, McLean Quinlan’s design is deliberately pared-back with “simple and clean” forms and materials that are modelled on the old garden wall.
