Orchid House by Sarah Featherstone

Here’s celebrating nature with an eco-friendly house in Cotswold in the UK. Designed by London-based architecture firm Featherstone Associates who are also designing the Athletes’ Village for the 2012 London Olympics.

Even architecture buff Brad Pitt is rumoured to have shown interest in the project that is to be built on a privately-owned 500-acre nature reserve near Cirencester. It has now been bought off-plan by an anonymous buyer for a neat sum of £7.2 million.

One of the many green features of Orchid House will be to produce more energy than it would consume with an underground heat pump and geothermal heating.
