{eco} design: Gap House

Here is a home that really makes the best use of available real-estate, limiting urban sprawl.  The award winning Gap House (see it, in the middle, with the vertical windows and horizontal shutters?), design by UK based architects Pitman Tozer, is seemingly short on space, yet the images shown below look expansive, airy, and roomy.  Goes to show that you should never feel limited and explore all potential!  The design was developed to determine the most cost effective methods of achieving an environmentally friendly house and utilises: Passive solar design, highly insulated building envelope, a ground coupled heat pump and rainwater harvesting.
