We are looking to build a new eco-home on a sloping site in England and would like some concept drawings to see what would be possible on the site.
The property should be suitable for an ageing/ elderly couple and have space for two visiting young families.
Sustainability and a connection to the surrounding countryside should be celebrated in the design.
The main garden area is further down at the bottom of the slope, but the design should include some outdoor space for sitting/ eating and growing easily accessible from the house.
I would anticipate the main bedroom being on the same level as the kitchen and living areas - to that end the site seems ideal for bedrooms on a lower floor but we are open to all ideas.
The plot faces north and east so getting light into the property will be a key concern. There is slope and hedging/trees to the south and woodland to the west.
The plot is approx 10-12m deep with the slope and approx 30m running along the slope. There has been some slight terracing added to the area. There is a drop of approx 3.5m from the top to the bottom of the plot. The property need only be of modest proportions. The two photographs attached are facing towards the east.
Access could be drawn from the hedge line below the plot or there is access above the plot. There is a v quiet road running behind the hedge edging the plot.
On the aerial shot the whole plot is lined in red with the area for development lined in green. North is to the top of the shot. The existing cottage will probably have to be demolished to gain planning permission.
Ideas that we like but are not wedded to include: balconies, a green roof, being built into the slope, a roof terrace, a conservatory, large windows/ glass wall, and easy to maintain natural materials.
