The sensitive context of this central Bath site has strongly informed the design of this new eco house: the building is set into the contours of the steep hillside so as to minimise its landscape impact, while planted terraces at each floor level and sedum roofs restoratively stitch the building into the hillside context. The exposed elevation is clad in Bath ashlar and rubble stone. The spaces in the sustainable house are arranged so that principal rooms take advantage of the south aspect and views while service spaces are set into the hillside.
