The Solution / Outcome
All buildings are oriented to the north, maximising direct sunlight into the majority of rooms. A central lounge, TV area and dining room to each ‘house’ give focus to the communal activities. The objective of The Glen is to enhance the opportunity for social interaction while respecting each individual’s need for privacy and security.
