High-end eco homes
This project is located to the north of Bristol is aimed at the high end of the residential market. The houses are sustainable and lifestyle-friendly and have been designed to be highly marketable. They exploit a southerly orientation and the houses radiate in an arc to capture the sun.
Like a piece of origami, the outside and inside walls, roof and floor are seemingly made from one continuous material and ‘wrap’ around the building to create a strong inside-outside experience, blurring the transition between house and garden. The south-facing elevations are highly glazed to capture low angle winter sun. Timber slats and deep reveals reduce solar gain in the summer and roof lights at the top of a 3-storey height space create a passive stack cooling effect.
