This project began as a competition entry for sustainable housing in Glasgow, part of Glasgow's City of Design '99 festival. The building design tends toward the more high-tech, very low energy approach. The walls are 400mm thick, with a U-Value of 0.15. This, combined with efficient heating, ventilation and windows, gives the whole building a SAP Rating of over 95.

Other features include barrier free access, natural ventilation and a passively heated entryway to minimise heat loss through doors.

The project went on to win the competition and is now built in Glasgow Green.

Further details are available on the Mactaggart and Mickel Web Site.
