Green Planning Studio’s director, Ruth Reed’s design and build eco-home has been featured on the website of Frame Technologies Ltd: Robins Yard – A modern eco-home with a refreshing design

Ruth, and her Husband Ian, chose Frame Technologies Ltd’s TechVantage™ S Building System for the design of their new home. Ruth and Ian are both architects, with Ruth being a past-president of the RIBA and with Ian being an expert in Passivhaus design. Ruth is no stranger to Frame Technologies Ltd’s timber frame systems having built a self-build timber frame home before with Frame Technologies’ MD Simon Orrells in 1998. So it is no surprise that they both opted to use Frame Technologies for their forever home.

Ruth and Ian’s self-build development has previously been featured with Frame Technologies for World Architecture Day in 2020 about her work as a self-build architect and her interest in self-build homes.

Green Planning Studio Ltd provide export support to self-builders looking to obtain planning permission for their project. If you would like to find out more about our services that are geared towards self-build homes please get in touch
