In this project the challenge of design and construction of a substantial residential, educational building that has outstanding sustainable credentials set within a cultural and historic landscape is tackled but in the context of real world constraints of the necessity to build quickly and to a modest budget. The research has been conducted through a design process involving testing of architectural form, environmental performance particularly through passive measures and constructional techniques. This relies predominantly on physical modeling techniques.
