The house, which is sited on a plot only 2.3m wide within a conservation area in West London, proves that sustainable architecture is achievable without compromise on the tightest of urban sites. The house incorporates a number of green strategies including passive solar gain, high levels of insulation, a ground coupled heat pump and rainwater harvesting to minimize its carbon footprint. It achieves all of this without compromising design. Save this picture!© Nick KaneWith a street frontage of only 8 ft/2.3 m wide the house sits within a narrow slot, originally the side alley and rear garden of an adjoining property. The challenge was how to create a Low Carbon Building and make a comfortable 4-bed family home, maximising light and space within the constraints of a tight and awkward site. Save this picture!© Nick KaneThe key to achieving a solution where each habitable room has good daylight and feels spacious, even within the narrowest part, was to stack the smaller bedrooms at the front of the house facing the street and to organise the rear in a cascading configuration with the wet rooms and storage occupying the parts of the plan with no natural light. A courtyard at the rear of the site brings light into the ground floor reception space. A central twisting timber stair held as a piece of sculpture off the walls brings daylight deep into the centre of the plan on each floor.

Local support is vocal, finds Hyder

first_imgMost UK shoppers believe it is important to support the local high street but just 32% admit to regularly using the stores, according to the latest survey by Hyder Consulting, a planning and environmental consultancy.It claims that in light of the Sustainable Communities Bill (see pg 16), 80% of UK adults believe it is important to support the local high street. Conversely, less than a third (32%) shop on the high street and nearly half (45%) say they do their main grocery shopping in out-of-town retail sites.The survey questioned a representative sample of 1,512 adults aged 18+ across the UK from 20-23 November 2006.last_img
