Architect Make has released the first images of the interior of the underground development on West Pennine Moors near Bolton which will be the first zero carbon rated home in the north west.
Neville told the Sun: “I wanted the best-performing property. I wanted to live in the best, most sustainable zero-carbon property.
“Most of the architecture professionals understand the work that has gone into it.
“The orientation, the efficiency, the thermal mass, the performance of the glazing, the performance of the rain-water recovery systems, the photo-voltaic solar cells, the wind turbine. It will have ground and air-source heat pumps. The hope is that all this technology will make it as efficient as possible.”
Construction is due to start next year.
Make said: “Already billed as ‘a house of the future’, the unique scheme truly tests the boundaries of current sustainable thinking in terms of design and construction.”
