Earthship Brighton

I visited the Erthship in Brighton in May 2010; It was built by the Low Carbon Trust and was the first Earth Ship to be built in England.

The images above and below shows the main room with a planted grey water recycling bed.

Side wall

The side wall wraps around to enclose the front entry and supports the earth mound that slopes up to roof. It shows the form of the car tyres that were used to build the back wall, the effect is very soft and organic.

View through to the kitchen from the main living area

Three water storage tanks are fed from the roof.

Solar panels on the roof supply the hot water and electricity
