Demonstration ‘Segal Method’ house build by a team of volunteers from Asia & Africa as part of UN Year of Shelter for the Homeless in 1987.
The design explored how a Segal self-build house could incorporate energy saving measures. These included polystyrene slab insulation, air tightness membranes and a passive solar south facing conservatory.
A similar house was built at the Glasgow Garden Festival. When the festival was over the house was dismantled and re-erected to a different plan as accommodation for a project at Monimail in Fife.
