The Hearth

The Hearth building creates a working centre for the Camphill Community in Ballytobin through co-locating their bakery, a food store and dairy on the ground floor as well as some volunteer accommodation above on the site of an old barn. The design explores issues of passive solar design, environmental conditioning and community identity using a number of innovative low embodied energy construction materials.
