New Low-Carbon House – Lincoln
Lincoln is the home to this new highly efficient home. A small plot on the outskirts of the city centre was enough to enable a dormer property to be built without being over-dominant, thanks to some clever design thought processes.
The key to this house was not only the intelligent internal layout, which sees 3 good sized bedrooms on the first floor, but the flexible use of the space on the ground floor, which could house at least one further bedroom whilst maintaining ample living space in the Kitchen and Living areas.
Where this property really stands out, is through its intelligent use of tried and tested technologies, and new innovative products; coupling timber frame construction with highly efficient multi-foil insulation, and the use of Mechanical Ventilation with Heat Recovery. Combined, this property is highly efficient with minimal running costs and a low impact on the environment.
