Architecture for London has designed Low Energy House in London, England.
This project is an Edwardian terrace in Muswell Hill that was extended and refurbished to create a comfortable, low-energy house. The original structure of the house was revealed, its modest beauty celebrated.
Energy requirements are reduced dramatically by insulating, triple-glazing and improving airtightness. New additions include a rear extension and a loft conversion.
This project aims to be an exemplar for the sustainable refurbishment of a typical terraced home in London, with a constrained budget – both embodied energy and energy in-use have been considered in depth.
