    Curriculum Vitae

  • eco house

    01Set as a compe on by the Concrete Centre, the Eco House is to be located in south-east England. The design should look to use concrete as a primary material, while crea ng the most sustainable form possible, encouraging both environmental and social well being. The design should house a family of four.

    Open communal areas, individual bedrooms with large deep set windows and the thought out use of space provides a compact home capable of housing an average family providing space for both privacy

    and family life. Using hempcrete as a primary building material along with a central light cowl the building takes advantage of

    passive techniques, minimising human and energy inputs facilita ng a sustainable home. The simplicity of design allows for quick

    construc on and low costs.

    Vehicular access


    While the house provides technological aides to sustainability, the environment it sits within provides for a desirable and sustainable place, both socially and environmentally. Open shared spaces allow freedom of ac vity whether it is simply children playing from day to day or a communal bbq. The use of space also allows light and air to fl ow in freely to the houses, their simple form being easily repeated to build communi es. The aim is to facilitate and provide the pla orm for a sustainable life, avoiding dicta on and control.

    In order for a home to be sustainable it must fi rst be a ordable, and so one way to facilitate low cost is by pre-manufactured components requiring simple assembly on site. This means that the house becomes easily adaptable during its life me as components can be removed and replaced as desired. This adaptability furthers the ambi on of sustainability by allowing inhabitants to customise and care for their homes over a longer life cycle.

    The use of a concrete frame and hempcrete walls allows a high thermal mass through out the building stablising internal temperatures. With hempcrete as a carbon nega ve material the environmental impact of the whole building construc on is minimised. Under fl oor hea ng creates an equal gentle warmth to be absorbed into the building fabric.

    Predominant winds move over the cowl crea ng a nega ve pressure on its northern side aiding passive stack ven la on.

    At the height of the tower a heat exchanger captures any escaping warmth to be redistributed into the house.

    Rain water is captured and stored for use in a grey water system.

    Increased fl oor to ceiling heights allow light deeper into the fl oor plan.

    High level balcony facilitates indirect security by over looking the space in front.

    A small storage shelter at the rear door provides a place for recycling bins and securing bicycles.

    With kitchen to the north side and the bathroom centrally placed rooms are placed to make the most of natural light and warmth.

    peninsula site

    Set a few minutes walk from the busy town centre, the gallery looks out into the countryside at the confl uence of the rivers Cam and Chelmer, as a green corridor creeps into the urban mass.

    Full access to the roof terrace provides not just an exhibi on area, but a public space, reaching over the water and raised above the day to day rush. At the front of the gallery two previously separated river crossings are brought together to create simple clear movement across the river.

    The fi rst fl oor entry point, along the new bridge, elevated and surrounded by water alludes to a sense of privacy and intrigue within the building, further experienced as visitors move into the galleries and then down to each lower level.

    Each gallery o ers a di erent atmosphere. From the waterside pla orm, accessible from only the water and within the building, its seclusion and surroundings as part of the exhibi ons themselves. In contrast, the third gallery, buried in the ground, is almost excluded from the very sur
