The Pond House at Ten Oaks Farm Comments:
1250 size is sustainable – less is more, great use of whole site as living room, outdoor kitchen, recreation,
Long term planning and integration of entire site, 20 year landscape development
Creative use of local and reclaimed materials
Energy modeling and holistic approach to meeting net zero – passive and integrated systems
Rainwater management on site
