Environmental Retrofit

The Technology Strategy Board sponsored Retrofit for the Future programme seeks innovative wholehouse design solutions to achieve an 80% reduction in CO2 emissions. This 1992 terraced house proved a particular challenge, as it already had insulated walls and double glazing. Spatial changes were made to the house, including a thermal lightwell through the centre, as well as other energy reduction measures including very high levels of insulation, triple glazing, solar thermal panels, PV panels and low energy appliances and lighting to meet the 80% CO2 reduction target.
