Smart or not so smart? It's all in the detail?
I commend the aspirations of the Smart House (AJ 2.12.04) to achieve a well-insulated building with minimal fabric losses, but the detail shown appears to have a cold bridge to the cantilevering concrete roof slab. A lot of thought has gone into the environmental design and there is a blue arrow on the environmental section at this point, so one assumes that this was intentional?
