A dramatic home in Kent displays not just the owners' vaulting ambition but also their passion for eco living. Deep in the Kent countryside is the home of architect Richard Hawkes, it's the sort of place that encourages passers-by to slow to a crawl in their cars. What they’ll see first is a vast arch thrusting out of the ground that’s covered with a lush carpet of grasses and flowers – in effect, a rooftop meadow – beneath which there are boxy glass and cedar protuberances: the interior rooms. “It’s every architects dream to build his own house at some point, and when we found this plot, it just felt so right,” says Richard.
