Furrows Para 55

This four bed Para 55 house will form a new landmark between the village settlement and the wider agricultural setting.

The design concept bears reference to traditional ploughing techniques and the first floor box, that contains the main living area, references the simple forms of local agricultural buildings.

The innovative design features a PV-T system and an Earth Energy Bank which enables vast amounts of summer solar energy to be stored. Furrows will be off-grid 85% of the time and still export enough electricity to run two further houses.
