The P.E.P. will supply the buildings in a 7 hectare redevelopment precinct with electricity and heating thermal energy (Cogeneration) in the form of hot water with twice the efficiency of a typical gas fired power station, with less than half the carbon emissions of a coal fired power station. In addition, some building’s will utilize the hot water produced to run absorption chillers to provide cooling, resulting in even greater efficiencies, and further reduced emissions.

This terraced house is located in a long and narrow plot situated on the edge of a small village.

The house has a contrast with both open sides, to the north the old village with narrow streets of stone. And to the south the garden, the pool, the sun and the landscape.

Access is possible through the two facades at different levels, but is usually done with the car through the south facade.
