A SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT
FOR STOKE NEWINGTON

A project for developing a tight backland site to create a small community of 3 houses, 4 flats, a work studio and a communal multi-purpose hall, with shared gardens and laundry/utility facilities.

A developed scheme met a very demanding brief, looking at the possible approaches to Energy Strategy and Sustainability including:

• Heat Pumps – Ground source, External Air or Exhaust Air source heat pumps providing domestic hot water and underfloor heating.
• Passivhaus
• Sustainable materials, from renewable sources wherever possible.
• Photovoltaic Cells – providing the electricity to run the heat pumps.
• Careful design of orientation and fabric maximising the potential for controlled solar mass/gain, along with high levels of insulation.
• Recycling of grey and rain water
• Green roofs
