Pitch-Gable House in London, England by Paul McAneary Architects

 
May 15th, 2016 by Sumit Singhal

Article source: Paul McAneary Architects

On a complex corner site in a London conservation area, the largest ‘pitched gable’ house form’s volume is intersected by two smaller house forms at non-orthogonal angles. Gutters and utilities are hidden, providing a clean lined exterior. Frameless windows are kept to a minimum on the street side, opening up at the rear for a large light filled living space. The design offers a bold response to the need for sustainable living. The house will boast excellent eco credentials using Passivhaus principles, incorporating solar panels, a ground source heat pump, maximum insulation and grey water recycling; whilst technological features work in tandem with the carbon neutral natural building materials. Paul McAneary Architects have re-interpreted the traditional house volume to create a new architectural formal typology.
