New Passivhaus Homes Planned for East London

PHT member Accredited Passivhaus Design (APD) has successfully secured planning permission for two new four-bedroom homes, which are be aiming to become the first Passivhaus dwellings in the London Borough of Redbridge.

The three-storey houses are on a corner plot in Ilford, East London. The clients’ brief, when appointing APD, was for a contemporary design solution.

For this prominent infill site the planners were keen to see modern design as an exemplar for other developments in the area. This pair of semi-detached houses present gabled elevations to the street, and the conjoined-twin plan gives a single gable to the rear. With metal and brick cladding, and triple-glazed windows, they give a stylish contrast to the much altered Victorian houses nearby.

Both houses are designed to be certified to the Passivhaus standard. The heating costs for these houses will be around £200 per year – a radiator and two towel rails will heat each house even in mid-winter.

Construction work is due to start in Spring 2017.
