An Edwardian terrace in Muswell Hill was extended and refurbished by Architecture for London to create a comfortable, low energy house. The original structure of the house was revealed, its modest beauty celebrated. Photography by Lorenzo Zandri and Christian Brailey.
Energy requirements are reduced dramatically by insulating, triple-glazing and improving airtightness. New additions include a rear extension and a loft conversion.
As the home of Ben Ridley, Director at Architecture for London, this project aims to be an exemplar for the sustainable refurbishment of a typical terraced home in London, with a constrained budget. Both embodied energy and energy in-use have been considered in depth.”
