Crossway – Zero Carbon House in UK

Zero Carbon House

This two weeks ago finished house is the new eco-home in UK which shows the combination of the latest technologies for energy saving with techniques dating back to medieval times. Technique of construction was used for the first time in Spain in 1382, known as the Catalan vault system. Low arch made of many layers of bricks glued to each other, with different orientation courses in order to achieve robustness without requiring additional support structures. It is designed by Richard Hawkes also as one of the first zero carbon houses in the UK. The house is harnessing solar energy to generate all its own electricity and thermal energy. The building demonstrates how contemporary design can celebrate local materials and crafts and integrate new technologies to produce a highly sustainable building that sits lightly on the Earth.
