Luxury five bedroom eco-home embeded in a hillside in the Chilterns
Entered on the first floor, all of the living spaces occupy this barrel-vaulted upper floor, with five bedrooms and a store room placed on the ground floor. The music room sits at the heart of the building and can be shut off via 3.1m high acoustic sliding folding glass doors.
Window bays created by facets in the plan provide views towards the distant hills. The green roof and green oak cladding tie the building into the surroundings.
A wood burning stove/boiler, solar thermal and electrical panels provide 20 per cent renewable energy.
