About the Eco House Design

Our commission is to design a very energy efficient modernist style house with a low carbon footprint going beyond Code 6. This will be achieved by using: prefabricated structurally insulated panels with very high levels of insulation, a new and novel form of diurnal and seasonal heat storage, natural shading to reduce solar overheating, low energy appliances and fittings, ground source heat pump, air and water heat recovery, recycling of waste, low water consumption fittings, rainwater harvesting and sound ecological materials.
