The architect set out to design a contemporary English cottage on the edge of a small village set in rolling Hertfordshire countryside. The clients wanted a  Passivhaus design with large volumes for family living and construction in natural materials. The result is a building that sits comfortably within its rural landscape, having a convincing architectural dialogue with its older near neighbours. It also has excellent sustainability criteria, with impressively low energy consumption.
