Upside Down Houses

We developed these two houses in the centre of Cambridge. Highly specific in their design they are intended to be proto-typical of the kind of new urban housing that could be provided in British cities in the 21st century.

They incorporate Geothermal pumps to harness heat energy from the earth providing both heating and hot water. The heat pump has replaced the need for a traditional boiler and the extra initial outlay will be recouped by minimising dependancy on increasingly expensive gas and electricity.
