Eco Country Houses

Eco Homes in Nature

Eco country houses can be located sensitively in the countryside and an open site allows sensitive consideration of the geological context and the freedom to site a home as best suits environmental considerations.

The first design, called P POD, is a passivhaus quality eco house, a highly insulated design with heat exchanged ventilation and forms a green covered tumulus in the landscape.

In the second, the organising concept for the site landscaping and house itself is a grid of circles spaced to reflect the geopathic character of the site. These are expressed in different materials and planting, varying in density and size with the range of electromagnetic frequencies found.

The house is cut into the hillside with floorplates extending like strata. The slanting façade of the pv cells encloses the house, providing daylight, views and electricity.

The third design is a timber shell house with a spiral of sloping green roofs nestling beside the River Thames in Cookham.
