Situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty, the large south facing windows help keep the house warm in winter, while the solar shading helps to keep heat gains to a minimum in the summer. Facit worked closely with the engineering consultants Packham Lucas to design a complex yet simple to assemble structure.
The house requires a heating system with an output of just 4kW for the entire 200sq.m house. Facit buildings are designed to be airtight, so as not to lose heat. This necessitates the implementation of a heat recovery system that draws in fresh air and expels stale air while retaining the warmth.

This contemporary family house comprises a series of rectangular volumes on two levels around a screened courtyard and includes an indoor swimming pool and a double garage. The two levels of the house are linked by an open spiral staircase.
The construction was to utilise prefabrications in order to minimise on-site labour. Also to integrate green technology in a quiet and understated way and to optimise the environmental benefits of the building's orientation seasonally.
