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

  • Comment

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.
