The spatlsl req u i re me nt for the retreat \NaB to provide 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, 1 of whiich had to be f1ullry accsssl b lie for those lin wheelchars or 'with rnobl Iliity preble rns, The ovejrridl~ng

recu ii rement for the protect was that the, bul Iding needed to be selt sufficient and exceed The Code fa r Sustal nable Hom as standard,

One of the most lrnpo rtant elements was. to create! a healthy buildln 9 whelf";s! all fi In is hes werS! of !Iow tox,iicity and ,olr"ganlG oriigin". A thick Ilayer

of nat u rail rnsula~~on was usee to achiieve a low Ilevel of thermal cond uctirvruy keeping tlh'e building cool in the summer and warm in the wints-r.

Local, Sllstainab~e '& Etni,ca~

An i rnportart e lernent of 1the, brief was to ma.iintain a sociall and econornc approach to

this project. Caution was used when sourcing and speciffying materials 'trying where possible to use local construction materials, lnvolve local suppliers, and USB locsl labour and production.
