University of East London, Residential Units

london1Local transport connections. Noise from London City Airport influenced the design of teaching and residential buildings.
We sought ways to achieve comfortable conditions behind potentially sealed façades without using cooling.
The solution, developed with the aid of our thermal model, combines solar control, mass, airtight construction and extensive use of an active fabric energy storage system. Our sustainable design strategy included the adoption of a non-ozone depleting policy, specification of renewable materials and water conservation measures.

Building performance is significantly better than current UK levels.
