Lammas is a pioneering eco-village located in Pembs, Wales, where all homes are integrated into smallholdings, providing 100% of its energy, water and waste services and the vast majority of residents’ food and incomes.
Lammas was co-founded by Bright Green Futures’ director Larch Maxey in 2005. As you can see from the pictures, the homes in our projects can look very different, ranging from rural to urban, and from completely unique to modern and conventional. What they all have in common, though, is that they are built to highly advanced sustainability standards.
Buildings: 9 smallholding plots each now with temporary or permanent self-build homes
Location: North Pembrokeshire
Main Features: each home was individually designed and build by their owner. Most building materials were taken straight off the land. Residents provide 75% of their livelihood off the land itself. Community hub, hydroelectricity, regular courses
Awards: 2009 Department of Energy and Climate Change Financial Award for the construction of the Community Hub
