New Forest House by PAD Studio

New Forest House by PAD Studio | Green | Scoop.it

British architects and interior designers PAD Studio have designed the New Forest Park House, a contemporary and eco-friendly home located in the south of England.


According to the architects: “The dwelling is set within an 18.5 acre plot, located adjacent to ancient woodland and heath, within the New Forest National Park. The massing, form and orientation of the new building has been carefully conceived to minimise the impact on the site and its surroundings. The main dwelling and annexe building both have low rise green roofs. The buildings are orientated to maximise solar gain, using ground source heat pump technology and a log boiler for heating and hot water requirements."

The design also incorporates rain water harvesting, grey water recycling and a natural swimming pond to further increase biodiversity within the site. The materials used throughout are sustainable, durable and in harmony with the site and its surroundings.

Energy Efficiency and Fuel Savings | The Energy Collective

Energy Efficiency and Fuel Savings | The Energy Collective | Green | Scoop.it
The first ever Energy Efficiency Market Report was just released by the International Energy Agency, and it clearly illustrates for the 11 countries* it examined that between 1974 and 2010, energy efficiency was the largest energy resource. In 2010, alone, (the most recent year for which data is available) savings from energy efficiency was greater than the output from any other single fuel source – including coal, oil, nuclear and gas. Who knew?We already knew from a recently released NRDC report that energy efficiency – stretching our energy dollars to do more with less-- is America’s greatest energy resource. And that despite it being our most productive and cost-effective resource, we keep forgetting it is a resource just like coal and oil but so much cleaner in terms of our air. (Efficiency isn’t even included on the list of the “all of the above” energy strategies being discussed in most public discourse.) This isn’t just an American phenomenon, but a global one that the IEA refers to as the “hidden fuel…hiding in plain sight.”The IEA report makes a number of other very eye-opening findings with regard to energy efficiency, including:Click headline to read more--
