34 new-build social houses for Hjaltland Housing Association. Recently completed, the scheme is based on the Home Zone concept where the car is subsidiary to the pedestrian. The distinct houses are designed to provide a variation of 1-4 bedroom dwellings to a high standard of energy performance, assisted by a district heating scheme. A very low caron footprint of at least 15% beyond the latest Building Standards requirements has been achieved. The colour scheme intended to remain vibrant and cheerful during the darker winter months of the year.
