A prefabricated house that meets CSH Level 6 and mechanically raises above flood water? This Six-Sided Pyramid Glass Pavilion on a green belt clearing in West Yorkshire seems to be all this and more. Melanie Griffiths catches up with Christopher James, the architect behind a design 30 years in the making.
By his own admission, Christopher James has been described as “the Nutty Professor” for his proposals to build this Six-Sided Pyramid Glass Pavilion on a green belt clearing on his estate in Scissett, West Yorkshire—a radical design which not only meets Level 6 of the Code for Sustainable Homes (CSH), but utilises an anti-flood device that will literally raise the house two metres above water. A house Christopher hopes will not just be a one-off, but a new template for prefabricated housebuilding.
