Touring a Sustainable Property with The Modern House

With working from home on the rise, and climate change afoot, what does the house of the future look like?

in Collaborations | 28 OCT 20

Since 2005, estate agency The Modern House has made design a focal topic of the property conversation. Embodying the agency’s specialism in houses that ‘reflect a modern way of living’, cofounder Albert Hill visits a home, in Somerset, UK, built to the ‘Passivhaus’ standard of ultra-low energy use. Meeting architect Graham Bizley, Hill discovers how efficient ventilation and the insulation provided by materials such as wood create an ecological environment, which is also suited for the new conditions of everyday living demanded by the pandemic.

 

Though set in an ancient landscape, notes Hill, the Dundon Passivhaus ‘really points the way to the future of what people will want from a house.’
