Focus House

Focus House is an ecologically advanced house designed by bere:architects. It is a low maintenance, low energy, low cost home in north London for a young couple and their children.

The house was built towards Passivhaus standards and used non-toxic materials, which ensures a supply of healthy air and water. Super-insulation, air tight construction and solar thermal water heating, coupled with water filtration, heat recovery ventilation and solid core KLH cross laminated timber construction, mean that the house has a low carbon footprint.
