Competition Passivhaus design for island living which uses pre-fabricated, lightweight materials that fit onto a standard shipping container and can be lifted into place with a lorry-mounted lifting arm. We identified areas for making savings on transport costs, construction time and requirement for specialist trades. Clad in Scottish timber and constructed to Passivhaus standard, this highly energy efficient home has minimal energy demands.
