This week’s feature is an old barn that has been converted into a low energy family home. Madrid based studio Ábaton found the building to be too remote to be connected to mains power and water supplies, therefore the house has been designed to function entirely off grid. This is achieved via passive solar gains and a steady water and hydro-electricity supply from two nearby steams.
