TAO-N house

Sustainable homes are required in our 'Peak Oil Age' and that these are affordable will become an issue of increasing concern. ArkDM is developing the 'TAO-N House' concept to address both of these current issues.  
Georgian ‘townhouses’ proved to be flexible through many different periods of time and put to a variety of uses. The principle of Tao (moderation) and of  'Wu wei' (alignment with nature), are both applied in the brief. The house which is to be built on land adjacent to ArkDM's offices, is intended as a practical project as well as a paradigm for smaller self-build projects where affordability and environmental performance come together.
