The sizeable site is presently occupied by a redundant farmhouse. The key design features of this early design concept relate to the maximisation of natural light, orientation and views.

The building will achieve exceptional design standards and be zero carbon and, if budget and technology allow, be capable of operation off-grid, i.e. not be reliant upon mains energy supplies.

This family home will be detailed in such a way as to have the lowest energy consumption possible with renewable technologies then being sensibly applied.

The building incorporates living, recreation (swimming pool), and ancillary accommodation at ground level and bedrooms at first and second floor levels.
