This project was the first big design project of the course. The brief was to design a writer’s retreat on Brownsea Island in Poole Harbour that adhered to Passiv Haus standards. An initial site visit was followed by a study of the site tectonics and from there sketch models were produced. The models were developed in tandem with research on architectural technology and smaller architectural projects as precedents for the retreat.
