UK-based Simon Winstanley Architects took on quite an endeavor with the Mackilston house. Their goal was a zero-net emission home—a home that has no adverse effects on the environment. The result of this challenge is a modern home that creates synthesis with the hill it's built into.

The Mackilston house has large open spaces, angles created to conserve warmth or cold depending on the season, and materials that are all sustainably obtained.

Implications - With Simon Winstanley Architects making great strides towards creating this single-story creation, you can tell they paid a lot of attention to contemporary details and creating a zero CO2 emission plan for the house.
