An uncompromisingly modern house in South London incorporating an exposed steel frame with diagonal bracing and precast concrete floors and stairs.


Despite being clad in glass the house achieves level 5 Code for Sustainable Homes. Walls are super insulated and heating and power is provided by ground source heat integrated into the structural piles, and a photovoltaic array at roof level. Additional features include mechanical ventilation with heat recovery and rainwater harvesting.
