UK will soon be building 195 zero carbon homes by the end of this year with the first homes expected to be completed by 2010. Developed by HTA Architects, the Hanham Hall Eco Village can be the largest eco-friendly village in UK, as it occupies 6.6 hectare of space. This former hospital in Bristol will be renovated and refurbished and transform it into a community center. The 195 homes will be built using energy efficient materials that are recycled from the existing buildings in the site. Aside from the sustainable materials, an onsite biomass CHP plant will power all of the 195 homes to promote eco-lifestyle.
