Ash Sakula has completed this £600,000 zero carbon prototype housing scheme in Hampshire
The practice won the job in a contest back in 2012 when it saw off competition from White Arkitekter, Bere Architects, Proctor Matthews and Letts Wheeler for the scheme which intends to demonstrate exemplar sustainable housing.
The timber-framed two-bedroom terraces were designed to be easy to build, insulate, heat and live in.
Each of the two-storey homes is accessed through a glass-roofed space that can be used as a boot room, workshop, greenhouse, play space, or porch.
The ground floor includes a living room, WC, dining room, and a kitchen which opens out onto the garden space.
According to the practice, the layout of the homes ‘focussed on how people actually want to live’.
The houses also feature asymmetrical saw-tooth roofs with south-facing PV panels used to generate power for the scheme.
Alongside the homes is a taller building featuring communal recycling and storage facilities.
