Crossway - house of the future

Crossway in Staplehurst, Kent is the dream home of architect Richard Hawkes:
Design with a conscience…

A house in Staplehurst, Kent that rejects the faceless vanity of contemporary architecture borne of a relentless lifestyle industry in place of design that explores the uniqueness of 'place'..

Crossway demonstrates how contemporary design can celebrate local materials and crafts to produce a highly efficient building that sits lightly on the Earth

When completed it will utilise cutting edge technologies for heat and energy and grey water storage and underground rain water storage for irrigation and reuse.
Richard's blog has some interesting articles on sustainable living and has regular updates on the progress of the build.
