This Edwardian terrace in Muswell Hill, London, has been expertly refurbished by Ben Ridley, Director at Architecture for London, to reduce energy requirements and create a comfortable, low energy house.
Triple glazing and improved airtightness and insulation of the building envelope, as well as a 172mm SIPS (6.77in) rear extension with highly insulated materials, have achieved a Passivhaus standard U-value of 0.15 or better (1.59 W/m2K). Further, natural materials like stone, timber and lime plaster were used throughout, and a Mechanical Ventilation Heat Recovery (MVHR) system was installed to provide pre-heated fresh air and filter the incoming air for a healthy indoor environment.
Open Plan Living, a mid-century terraced house in Edinburgh, Scotland, designed by AGORA architecture + design, is a stunning example of minimalist design.
The owners of the property have created an open-plan layout with the kitchen at its heart, making the most of natural light from large windows to the garden. Bespoke full height shelving frames a large oak lined window seat and minimal finishes are used to enhance the feeling of space.
Edinburgh itself is known for its vibrant culture and history, making Open Plan Living the perfect place to call home.
