Bishopston Eco house

This housing project was undertaken during the winter of 2015 to 2016. The idea was to create an adaptable space on a small urban plot, while still using local natural materials. The was constructed out of Walter Segal style timber frame on a concrete free foundation, the building is insulated with sheeps wool insulation and wood fibre board. A living roof and solar panels form the roof. A lot of reclaimed wood was used in the finishes for the project, including king pins, from the original warehouse that was on the site, which are used to built the bed. Locally grown and milled larch was using for the cladding and fascia. We at Red Kite also undertook the garden design and build, using reclaimed timber and bricks from the original building.
