Gap House

A house ingeniously slotted into an unpromising plot

With an entrance just 8ft wide, this house is ingeniously slotted into an unpromising plot to create a comfortable and airy four-storey family home that makes a virtue of its constrained site.

Exploiting the latest cost-effective technology to minimise its carbon footprint without impacting on its sleek style, the Gap House is both eco-friendly and economical to run.
