Embedded in the ground to minimize its impact on the surrounding hillside, the Bolton Eco House by Make Architects has been dubbed “the house of the future.” The Bolton Eco House is the first zero carbon property in the North West of England. Built into the contours of the Pennine hillside, the design and construction of this one story, four bedroom home tests the boundaries of current sustainable thinking.
The home has been designed to use less energy than it creates. A ground source heat pump, photovoltaic panels and a wind turbine will generate on-site renewable energy. All materials used in its construction are locally sourced.
