The brief for these eco town houses was to reach a high-end, design-savvy market. Achievements in efficient use of space and energy allowed for approval of a fourth unit. Living spaces are located on the first floor and orientated north, maximising light and free energy provided by the sun. The roof form catches sea breezes.

Underground tanks store water collected from roofs, reducing the reliance on mains water and relieving pressure on public stormwater systems.
