We ran across this ingeniously-structured small cabin, with a living surface of just 750 square feet (about 70 square meters) designed by studio Maryann Thompson Architects and located in Berkshire County, Massachusetts, USA. Despite its modest size, the small home accommodates a kitchen, living, dining areas and two sleeping alcoves and gives away a feeling of space. Here is more from the architects’ official project description: “The house also incorporates such commonsense sustainable strategies as radiant structural slab, which maximizes opportunities for passive solar gain through the broad expanses of glass on the south and east elevations. Natural cooling is achieved with the stack effect through operable skylights and ceiling fans”. 

The house utilizes a highly efficient remote-operated mechanical system so that the homeowners can monitor and adjust it from a distance.The house also incorporates such commonsense sustainable strategies as radiant structural slab, which maximizes opportunities for passive solar gain through the broad expanses of glass on the south and east elevations.

These days, a building doesnt just have to look good, it should ideally be good for the environment too. A great example of sustainability spliced with style from the past few years is the M&S store at Cheshire Oaks Retail Park in Ellesmere Port, designed by Aukett Fitzroy Robinson.

An example of a huge success is Heneghan Peng Architects’ Giant’s Causeway Visitors’ Centre in Antrim, Northern Ireland. Using the large difference in level across the site, the architects created two folds in the landscape. Bold, but not conflicting with the rather bleak natural environment, these folds draw all the man-made areas together and create one fitting man-made break in the natural landscape. In the words of the architects themselves, There is no longer a building and a landscape, but building becomes landscape and the landscape itself remains spectacular and iconic
