The solar-powered 'Flat House' is the design work of London-based Practice Architecture and highlights the capabilities of eco-friendly architecture to set new standards in the industry. Located on the Margent Farm in rural Cambridgeshire, the house is crafted with prefabricated panels that have been infilled with hemp that's grown on the farm itself to further enhance the eco nature of the building. The hemp tiles are bound together using a sugar-based resin sourced from agricultural waste, while the building as a whole was erected in just two days.
The solar-powered 'Flat House' boasts an off-grid profile with power and heating coming from a biomass boiler as well as the aforementioned solar panels that are installed across the roof.
