We have lived in Cambridge for many years, and we had upgraded our existing 1930’s house to improve its energy performance. We wanted to live more sustainably - in a different environment, and with more beautiful architecture. 

However after looking for land elsewhere, we decided to build in our own back garden, seeing this as an opportunity to make a step-change. We wanted to create an exciting, beautiful, low energy house which reflects our wish to reduce our impact on the environment.
