A potentially revolutionary new concept and design for a carbon neutral neighbourhood in Wales has been revealed by Loyn & Co.
The Welsh-based Architects unveiled the inspiring project, titled Parc Hadau, which features a community of homes made entirely from cross-laminated timber and powered completely by renewable energy – potentially showcasing the future of sustainable town planning.
In 2020, more and more attention is set to be given to how humans can minimise their impact on environment, with Loyn & Co revealing potentially sustainable alternatives to traditional home construction.
The new neightbourhood will comprise of 35 eco-friendly and 100% sustainable homes on scrubland in the Pontardawe region near Swansea, Wales.
The community will include 11 two-bedroom homes, 22 three-bedroom homes and two four bedroom homes, all surrounding a large, community garden and recreation building for multi-activity use.
Each of the homes will have a net-zero carbon construction, instead making use of renewable energy technologies throughout the building process.
The eco-friendly neighbourhood will not use any traditional energy sources to power lighting, heating and electricity, instead, all electricity and power will come from renewable alternatives; such as wind, solar and water.
The Parc Hadau Welsh carbon neutral neighbourhood project is set to begin construction in late 2020, with homes expected to ready to be moved into by summer 2021.
