Low Energy Home

Having won the Evening Standard's Eco Living Award and Best Boutique Development, this unique, luxurious low energy home developed by Leathwaite is set in a two acre site and combines the best of contemporary architecture, design and building technology.

The EPC A-rated property's sustainability criteria is achieved much in part by the building materials used.

On the exterior of the building, Richlite clads the country home in a striking contrast that breaks up the facadé, and sets off the curved outdoor staircase.

The central atrium of the home showcases a commissioned working art installation, created by Lisa Traxler, Visual Artist and engineered by Architect Lincoln Miles. The stunning staircase is made entirely of the solid paper composite, Richlite. Etched within the surface, the artwork is inspired by Roman Temples that previously occupied the site in the 1800s - its heritage and structure reflected in the map lines of the piece. This installation forms the walls, staircase and balustrade in a completely bespoke and elaborate hero of the home.
