Low carbon #2: Muse House, London by Bere Architects

Case study to show the six buildings with the lowest predicted annual CO2 emissions for their type

Services engineer Max Fordham
Annual predicted CO2 emissions 14.5kg/m2

Bere Architects’ home and studio in London uses PassivHaus principles to achieve very low energy use. A highly insulated envelope incorporates a minimum of 300mm of insulation in walls and roof, with triple-glazed argon-filled windows throughout. Airtightness of approximately 0.6m3/m2/hr@50 Pa, while common in Germany, is exceptionally low for the UK.
