Acting as Executive Architect for the Higgs Young houses, the three bedroom semi-detached dwellings were constructed using highly sustainable materials and technologies.
The three storey houses were constructed from beam and insulated panel floors, timber frame structure, hemcrete walls and a highly insulated timber cassette roof with an irrigated sedum finish providing high levels of energy efficiency.
Renewable energy sources including solar hot water and photovoltaic panels were used on the large south facing sloped wall to contribute towards the reduced energy demand.
