These days it's not easy to find spare space for new eco-neighborhoods, so Evgeni Leonov Architects designed a series of narrow egg-shaped homes that extend from the historic Trent Villa in Nottingham. Considered to be one of the most energy-efficient forms found in nature, the egg shape served as the main inspiration for the urban regeneration project, which is designed to meet Passive House requirements.
