This Sustainable Family Home Blends Into The U.K.'s Natural Habitat

By Brian Spaen

A sustainable family home has been built next to one of the most iconic conservation sites in Britain. The Chalfont Home, developed by RX Architects, provides amazing views of the Rye Harbour Natural Reserve while also blending in to its habitat. The structure provides perfect natural lighting and solar panels for renewable power.

Instead of refurbishing an existing structure on the property, RX Architects opted to create a new building that was able to connect with the natural reserve. It takes a similar form to the Mary Stanford Lifeboat building that across from its location and is constructed with pre-cast shingle-based concrete.
