Surrey firm Architect 8 has designed the Responsive House, which is insulated with hemp and wood fibres and warmed by the sun through south-facing glass.

Our House, from North London practice More Design, has an upside-down configuration with a bedroom next to the car port on the ground floor, and living room, kitchen and winter garden on the second floor.

Deverill-Jenkins from London has created the The Stromal House with a glazed staircase that produces electricity every time it is walked on and has photovoltaic cladding.
