Sally Ruel, Architect

A collaborative project between Sally Ruel, Architect, and Jeremy Cunningham, sculptor and builder, the new house at Nether Linnfall was designed to be a simple, environmentally friendly building, using materials from renewable or recycled sources, with as many as possible obtained locally. It is energy efficient in its design and orientation, with high levels of insulation in the construction, triple glazed windows, and orientated to the south and west to maximise passive solar gain. The water supply and drainage system has been designed to have as low as impact as possible on the environment, and there are plans in future to install solar and hydro electric power sources.
