The modular design is driven by sustainable methods which include:
– Lineal structure with east-west orientation allowing cross ventilation
– Maximised North windows which allows the home to enjoy the northern sun
– Green Roof which minimises rainwater run off and solar penetration
– FSC certified external timbers milled from sustainable forestry methods
– Low VOC internal paints and natural oils
