Small But Mighty Passive House in London


Architecture firm Tectonics designed the first new-construction Passive House in Hackney, London.

The upper level consists of an open-plan living and dining space and was built with a prefabricated cross-laminated...
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.
Located on an infill lot, the house is clad with Anthra Zinc panels by VMZinc.
