Thamesmead goes Dutch on green development

  • Comment

Dutch practice Splinter Architecten has designed a green housing development in South east London. Called Thamesmead Eco Park, it will comprise 39 homes built to Dutch space standards (more generous than British standards). The buildings will include: solar collectors; rainwater recycling and dispersal to maximise recharging of aquifers; materials chosen to be low- maintenance, renewable and of low embodied energy; specification to exceed European 'Green Financing Criteria'; orientation for optimum solar gain.

The houses will form Phase 3 of Gallions Reach Urban Village.
