Underground eco house

Throop, Dorset

The client wished to explore the possibility of creating a new build semi-underground house within the grounds of their existing property.   We carried out a thorough feasibility study and design to encapsulate the challenging brief to produce a house of organic design to fit into the natural landscape.  The private site is heavily sloped and is situated overlooking fields and green open space.

The design incorporated sustainable methods of construction and environmental building management systems.  The concealed building would not be visible from the street scene as it is designed under a green roof to blend into the landscape.
