Darwin House

Etude are acting as Passivhaus consultants on this new build scheme providing 52 units and a community room together with new public open space and landscaping, car parking, cycle parking and plant.

Block A (5-7 storeys) will provide community supporting housing and Block B (4-5-storeys) will provide general housing. Both blocks are targeting Passivhaus certification.

All units will be heated by a compact exhaust air source heat pump which will help to reduce the predicted Energy Use Intensity to under 30 kWh/m2/GIA.

A large PV system on the roofs of each block will generate approximately 80% of the total annual energy use, putting this scheme among the lowest carbon buildings in London in terms of operational energy.
