Smart and Sustainable Future: House Designed by Philip Stringer, UK
Located in a tranquil setting in the Kent countryside, the house was designed by architect Philip Stringer. It is highly energy-efficient, thanks to triple glazing and high thermal insulation and is set in over 1/4 acre of stunning landscaped gardens. Sustainability has been a driving factor in Stringer’s design, as can be seen in the overall energy-efficiency of the building and the fact that it is a timber frame construction (with timber cladding and an aluminium sheeted roof). The house is quite simple, but very functional: three double bedrooms (one currently used as a library), a shower room, bathroom and small study area.
