Dorset Road, London

Contemporary highly sustainable home

This new build in Vauxhall employs a number of technological innovations to create a sustainable and comfortable family home. The use of solar technologies, renewable heating sources and thermally efficient materials removed the need for a boiler. Clad in a verdant living wall irrigated by harvested rainwater, and with extensive glazing bringing light in from all angles, this house maximises space on a tight urban site. A roof terrace with planting beds creates an elevated urban garden.
