Built into the hillside of Belper and overlooking the Amber Valley, the Light House is best known for its remarkable materiality which becomes progressively light as it extends outward, from solid red stone to timber and then glass. Incorporated within the aesthetic appeal, this project exemplifies our interest in minimising energy consumption in residential architecture through the use of low-tech measures such as solar gain and recycled heat.
