Zero Carbon London
→ First terrace houses of their kind in London’s Zone one.
→ Part of C40 Cities Climate Positive Development Programme and ‘climate positive’
A terrace of fifteen ultra-energy efficient townhouses that combine the use of cross laminated timber as a sustainable building material and Passivhaus design in a conservation setting. Sympathetic to the existing Victorian bay fronted townhouses situated directly opposite, the Futurehomes employ projecting chamfered bay windows of reconstituted stone on the ground floor with tall shuttered windows above. Sustainability has been at the core of the vision for South Gardens, including Passivhaus standards, grey water recycling and additional renewables. The resulting ultra-low energy buildings require little energy for space heating or cooling, thus reducing their ecological footprint.
