Our take on a new eco house house in Southampton

Eco House Fareham

New Eco House

The new eco house that we designed for a self builder in Southampton was the natural evolution of a number of designs that we had worked on.

Given the amazing opportunity of building their own house, we first had to convince our client not to build a chalet bungalow that resembled the house they were living in. Our solution was to design a truly modern house that could be built on a sensible budget by a novice builder. We carefully developed the design to suit the small triangular plot, basing the construction on a no nonsense traditional build. Into the design we incorporated a number of simple but proven energy saving measures.

The house was a finalist in the in the South East Local Authority Building Control, Building Excellence Awards 2016.
