This plan was developed for a small housing design competition. The focus was on creating a smaller footprint, therefore reducing the buildings materials and resources consumed, create interesting spaces and deliver a cost effective home. The design is compact with an open plan design, the living and sleeping spaces are orientated to the north to give shading in summer and sun access in winter. The roof is angled to suit solar panels and the highlight windows allow natural light, winter sun and warm air out. The building is a lightweight modular design working to standard material sizes.
