Project value: $1,000,000+
Settlement house comprises three pitched pavilions connected by walkways and glazing and one concrete flat roof pavilion where secret doors and windows can be opened to create a free flowing home connecting to the various outdoor living spaces. Or close up areas of the home to create separated cocoons. It is a home that is ever adapting to the life of those who live there.
Settlement house challenges the norm, it is a cleverly designed home that is modest in size for relaxed family living with beautiful fixtures and fittings. A house that is well considered, to combat the impact building has on the environment and continual price rises. As houses get bigger and bigger our impact on the environment grows, not only during construction but also with the ongoing running of these home. Settlement house will utilise passive house principles and material choices have been made in relation to sustainability and ethical production.
