The build comprises a new construction three story town house, located in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. The house is thermally insulated to an exceptionally high level to minimize the heat loss using sustainable materials such as wood pulp and recycled newspaper etc. Heating for the property is drawn from three 65m deep geothermal boreholes which are connected to a ground source heat pump. The heat pump is driven from the photovoltaic cell located on the roof. All waste water from the baths, showers and sinks is recycled via an Aquacycle filtration system. The house benefits from a whole house heat recovery ventilation system allowing the fresh air to be preheated. The lighting utilizes low energy and LED luminaires.
