Carbon Neutral House With a Surprising Modern Appearance

Building a carbon neutral house harnessing the latest in green technology was the main objective aimed by Paul Archer Design, who developed Green Orchard, a 200 sqm residence in South Gloucestershire, UK. The project is neighbored by the Severn Estuary and is set withing landscaped gardens. A seamless indoor-outdoor connection was achieved with the help of four glass-pierced elevations taking advantage of the surrounding views.

Environmentally-conscious features make this place stand out: “The exterior is clad in an intelligent skin of bespoke full-height panels, which are electronically motorized to slide open fully. The panels are highly insulated and allow the occupants to control and vary the thermal performance of the house depending on the time of the day and year. An aluminum coating reflects the surrounding gardens ensuring that the house recedes into its setting“. How would you personally comment on the overall design of this project?

Inside the school, a wall made of cross-laminated timber separates classrooms from the main corridor, providing a space for storage and study. With very little to work with, the architects have managed to create a building that is much more than just the sum of all of its parts

Energy during the construction process was saved by using FSC-certified glulam timber instead of steel to create the building’s distinctive wavy roof, while the store’s external walls use hemclad, a highly innovative insulator made from hemp, which, like all plants, absorbs CO2 from the atmosphere as it grows. An 80,000 litre water tank below ground provides water for the store’s toilets and waters the site’s green wall’, which provides natural insulation, acts as an all-natural pollution filter near the car park, and helps to encourage biodiversity. The result is a building that uses a fraction of the energy of structures of a similar size, and is still very popular with local shoppers.
