Low Energy House – Edinburgh
A new build house designed to be energy efficient and allow interaction with the established surrounding garden. The shape of the sedum roof allows light deep into the plan and internal doors are aligned to create a flow through the building.
Chimney cowls were specially commissioned to provide interest, and the pergola’s Chinese red columns signify good luck and strength. The principle rooms connect onto the long pergola covered terrace and the main garden whilst service areas and more shaded patios are facing North.
Internally, the barrel vaulted ceiling creates a large and airy space.
