The approximately 1076-square-foot, two-bedroom dwelling was built by architect Bernard Tulkens for his parents-in-law. It is the fifth certified Passive House to be completed in London. Natural Douglas fir flooring by Dinesen covers the living area, which contains shelving by Vitsoe.
The upper level consists of an open-plan living and dining space and was built with a prefabricated cross-laminated timber construction. The kitchen is outfitted with Miele appliances and a terrazzo countertop from Marmi Scala. Aim pendants from Flos hang above the stairway.
With an airtight building seal and triple-glazed windows, the structure receives all the heat it needs from the sun.
The lower level has a reinforced concrete frame. The timber and concrete surfaces are left exposed throughout the home. Tolomeo lights from Artemide hang above one of the beds.
Located on an infill lot, the house is clad with Anthra Zinc panels by VMZinc.
