Gale & Snowden

High Bickington, Devon

Low energy sustainable house, set in the rolling landscape of North Devon.

Natural materials and finishes predominate at 'Greenwood'. The house is built into a south facing bank and benefits from gorgeous panoramic view and shelter from northerly winds.

The site generates its own fuel and power from coppiced wood, solar thermal and PV panels, and a productive garden provides food for the occupants.

Top light and open volumes afford the house a sense of volume, complimenting the use of natural materials and finishes that predominate.
