This bright, cheerful and energy efficient house is a culmination of several years of informal research and design development for low energy one-off houses by our practice.


A B1 rated timber frame house sheltered from the Atlantic storms by tucking itself into the existing hillside naturally with the surrounding cluster of houses and farm buildings. Carefully sized and located windows maximise views to the mountains and sea. Maximum glazing has been provided to the south. The house was built in under 10 months to a very high specification within the tight budget allowed.
