The design concept successfully balances open-plan spatial / living requirements and energy efficiency with a contemporary modernist aesthetic . Key elements of the design include a southerly aspect for all the principal living spaces (akin to a traditional Devon Longhouse), a thermally massive structure, high-performance solar control glazing and insulation exceeding current Building Regulation requirements.
