The clients’ brief called for a low budget, eco-friendly house for a young family of four. The answer came in designing a simple volume, maximising the floor area while minimizing the material consumption. A careful choice of materials, timber for the structure and cladding, strawbales for the insulation, and a rational detailing of the design, ensured it meet the clients’ small budget. It also provided the required simplicity for the owners to be able to build their new home themselves.
