“This design is exciting in that it far exceeded our expectations; its like a beach front house with all the sharp edge design and Eco ingredients - contemporary tranquil and glamour at an economical cost - a simple clever design that accomodates modern living.“
A home inspired by the offices of ARCO2, the clients were attracted by our open plan design, natural light via North facing rooflights, gable glazing to the East and West, spaciousness and sustainable construction methods.
Tree House was designed and constructed using a never seen before pre-fabricated strawbale modular system. Combining quality, innovation and one of the most sustainable pre-fabricated building methods available today. A project ARCO2 are extremely proud of.
- Clever storage solutions
- South facing passive solar sun space
- Locally grown timber balcony
The 3 double bedrooms are located on the ground floor. This clever design means the bedrooms stay cooler with the warm air naturally rising to the open plan first floor. The heart of the home then benefits from spectacular countryside views.
- Rooflights maintain a constant natural light
- Locally constructed timber and glass dogleg staircase
- Large areas of Gable Glazing
With the use of natural low embodied energy materials, super insulated structure, minimal heating load and overall design, this unique home is a leading example of how a sustainable home should be built.
- Super insulated with sheep wool and strawbale
- Future proofing
- Locally sourced materials
