Spotted on themodernhouse.net, the four-bedroom house we present you today represents an example of how to make your home more energy efficient, reduce high energy bills, improve comfort and help protect the environment. 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.
