This house for a private client has been designed to prototype a realistic and repeatable solution to low-energy housing with net zero carbon emissions equivalent to Code for Sustainable Homes Level 5.
Designed with economy and buildability in mind, it compliments its surroundings through the use of local stone and other natural building materials.
Solar thermal panels, a biomass stove and a whole house ventilation system complement passive design measures such as a super-insulated timber frame and a double height sunspace.
