This is a new build detached eco house designed by award-winning eco architect Mark Pellant of Koru Architects (www.koruarchitects.co.uk). The house is zero carbon, benefiting from a good orientation, and very high levels of insulation and air-tightness - which exceed building regulations.

A wood pellet boiler and solar thermal array provide the small amount of heat required. A large underground rainwater harvesting tank provides water for flushing the toilets. The photovoltaic array exports energy to the ‘grid’. Materials are mostly natural, low impact and environmentally friendly and reflect the architects’ desire to promote green architecture.

The house is the realisation of a long held dream, following a five year journey of searching for a suitable site in Brighton & Hove, designing the house and then building it.
