Staughton Thorne Architects

A new house on land previously containing a tennis court. The design comprises an excavated garage beneath two co-joined volumes that integrate with the site's immediate landscape. Thermally insulated precast panels combine with insulated concrete floors and double-glazed window systems to produce a highly energy efficient building. 45,000lt of rainwater is retained below-ground for domestic use.
