The single family home is a three storey 5 bedroom detached home situated close to the heart of Cambridge. The building is constructed from a frame of cross laminated timber panels which form the walls, floor and roof and are supported by glu lam beams and columns. The front elevation is clad in a semi-reflective patterned glass rainscreen, whilst the rear elevation has large openings to the sun and the garden, with provisions for external sunscreening.

The house is super insulated and designed to maximise passive solar gain. Preliminary energy use figures have shown that the house meets rigorous German Passivhaus standards for energy efficiency.
