Para 79 house


BGA Architects

The Gallery , The Old Gasworks , 43 Progress Road , Leigh on Sea , Essex , SS9 5PR , United Kingdom

BGA Architects have been commissioned to design a compliant “Paragraph 55” house. The property will be set inside a small woodland area, isolated from all services. The property will be completely off grid and self-sufficient, in terms of both living on and off of the land. The property will be constructed using straw bale methods, green roofs and living walls. The utilities will be self-generated using locally source water collection, solar panels and off grid energy stores.
