With these four new houses in South Gloucestershire, the developer client has shown that well-designed, low-carbon housing can be built at a viable commercial cost. The architects worked with the developer over a five year period to develop a modular timber system that offers more flexibility than typical prefabricated panel systems. To add to the challenge, the team tried to source materials from within the UK, and as close to the site as possible. The project is actually a way of thinking, a body of research and the development of a system, of which the houses at Patch Elm Lane are the first fruits.
