A Design Inspired by Nature

The house lies in the countryside and is surrounded and covered by gardens, with large openings to merge house and garden

The fibonacci spiral starts in the landscape and curls round to form the plan of the house

Windows to the front of the house are triple glazed and curved, but also have an optical illusion based on the structure of a bee’s eye.

Passivhaus Construction

Even at an early stage of construction, the qualities of the design shine through.

The north facing entrance facade is relatively unglazed to prevent heat loss. It has an abstract patterning to lead you through to the main gardens facing south
