Passivhaus, Dulwich Estate
Albany Park is the extension and refurbishment of a 1930s property in Kingston. The work includes the demolition of an existing garage to make way for a new side and rear extension containing a studio/workshop, large open plan kitchen dining, separate utility room and downstairs shower room. The workshop also includes a bespoke sliding 3 wall box rooflight and there is an eaves flush glazed rooflight to the rear extension.
The thermal performance of the existing property will also be improved with external wall insulation, replacement double glazed windows throughout, underfloor insulation, draught proofing and a ventilation upgrade. The combination of the new highly insulated extension and improvement to the existing building fabric should result in a reduction of space heating demand of 70% and a reduction in primary energy use of almost 40%.
