Currently on site – our low energy house at Muswell Hill. This refurbishment and extension includes a number of design features that reduce both energy in use and embodied energy. These include minimising the use of steel and concrete structure, insulating all solid masonry walls, a continuous airtight layer, triple glazing and MVHR for ventilation. Some have been more challenging to achieve on site than others! We will be sharing more info about the process, successes and the challenges in a detailed blog post soon.
