Located within (grade II-listed) historic garden walls, this is a low lying timber and glass house, with those eco features including a green timber-frame and straw bale construction, a ‘crescent’ shape to benefit from solar gain throughout the day (see illustration below to get a better idea of the shape) and a planted roof and zinc overhang to prevent overheating.
