Clay Field

Hawley, Catherine [Architect], Riches, Annalie [Architect] and Mikhail, David [Architect] (2009) Clay Field. (Housing (Completed Architecture)).


Won in an RIBA Competition by Riches Hawley Mikhail, Clay Field provides 26 sustainable homes in a rural Suffolk village. It is an exemplar in sustainable rural housing design. The project was completed in 2009. Houses are arranged in terraces of three, positioned in pairs around three communal gardens; a wildflower meadow, allotments and a playground in an orchard. A shared biomass boiler, rainwater recycling and whole house ventilation are used but most importantly all houses face south and are highly insulated. Properties are of unusual hemp construction with finishes of cedar and lime render.
