Art Deco House
Remodelling of a bungalow – Art Deco House, Brighton
The client wanted an energy efficient home that maximised the stunning coastal views to the south. She also has a passion for the Art Deco style.
The existing pitched hipped roof was demolished and two floors above were added. These now have flat roofs, which form terraces that step back both from the front and from the west side of the building. The house now meets a proportion of its energy needs and reduces its carbon footprint by the use of solar panels for production of hot water and electricity.
• Low flush toilets fed by a rainwater-harvesting tank
• A flat roof planted as a living green roof
• Passive solar gain
• Solar panels to produce hot water and electricity
