Demonstrating how a zero-carbon-emission home can mix with sustainable design, this Radlett home is now Living In Space's flagship high-end, eco-friendly project. Inspired by mid-century Californian homes, this project aims to combine the demands of high-end clientele with environmental sustainability.
The Lauren Nicholas kitchen is complete with Gaggenau, Siemens and Miele appliances, and contrast with the light oak ceiling beams. Natural light floods the residence, and doubles up as an eco-friendly factor which limits the reliance on artificial light or a central heating system. Alongside this, sustainable measures including a ground source heat pump and photovoltaic solar panels have helped the property to achieve a 100% reduction in CO2 emissions.
The residence boasts a round tower, featuring a basement bar, wine cellar and cinema room. On the first floor of the tower, nicknamed the Kiln, the master bedroom is furnished with a contemporary chandelier style Atemide pendant light, a silk Jacarnda Carpet and and walls upholstered by Brian Yates.
The ensuite has a bespoke Corian basin, a stone bath, gracefully free standing and Hansgrohe brassware. Earthy, pared-back tones have been selected, but glamourous elements recur with freshwater pearl mosaics and a sleek plaster finish.
This this level of quality and style is not usually linked with the restrictive notions of Government legislation associated with construction and building design. The Brickfields project is not a mismatch of the two, however, and the results feel integrated and seamlessly link to form a serene interior space.
