About this project

A competition winning demonstration house of sustainable methods of building and running a home, a public Exhibition to promote ecological issues as part of the CREATE Centre, Bristol.

Using the principals of passive solar heating, super-insulation and the stack-effect the house maintains a diverse series of microclimates tailored to each room function. Total heating costs for the House are approximately £50 per year. SAP rating :100 NHER rating: 10.00 Building performance index: 226
