Solar Passive ‘leaf’ no 4: Design Studies

This is a design for a very small two bedroom solar passive ‘leaf’. It has potentially level access throughout. A pair of ramps give access to its two bedrooms and their elevated private terraces at either end of the house. The plan includes a ground level WC and a small home office. The gross internal area is  111 square metres ‘.

The design can have solar panels and either a chimney stack for a fireplace, or a media centre located where the fireplace would go, and the stack used as a passive vent.

Aerial view with roof removed. The Lounge and Kitchen dining areas are open planned and front-and-centre of the plan. The two double en suite bedrooms are reached by short curved ramps behind the Kitchen units and Lounge respectively. Each bedroom has a private terrace.

Natural materials are used inside and out.
