Contemporary Norwich architects have built upon early modernist concepts that emphasized siting, light, openness, and material. Today, new building materials and a more sophisticated understanding of thermal mass mean that it is possible for a house to have large windows and at the same time achieve net zero-energy use. Current ideas about preservation of open space mean that homes continue to connect to the site, but are now situated at the edge.
