ECO EXTENSION MEWS IN BARNES
Eco extension mews house, that reduces energy consumption and uses low carbon materials
A house extension can be done with ecologically sourced and low maintenance materials, and planned to reduce energy consumption by maximising daylight to rooms.
This small but tall extension to a mews house for two environmentalists was one of our first Re-co2-fit schemes in 1998.
It has an extremely simple form and, together with replanning measures internally, new rooms have been provided on each of three floors.
To maximise daylight into the deep plan there is a large sliding doorset on each floor and a glass block floor at first floor level.
The construction, a marine ply clad steel frame with isofloc paper pulp insulation and a coloured render, ensures that it is also low maintenance.
