Sustainability is the cornerstone of the pragmatics of K House. From its materiality – concrete, painted brick, glass, marble and American oak timber – to the inclusion of measures that take maximum advantage of the home’s location, such as solar panels, a concrete roof and floor for passive heating and cooling, cross ventilation. Each element works hard to inform aesthetics as well as passive performance, right down to the garden which complements the home’s design and environmental context while extending further to cultivate edible plants year-round.
K House is a richly structured home, a haven that holistically homages its outstanding situation through every detail. It exudes a quiet luxury; one that rests in its abiding design and a propensity for understanding its profound value to its residents, context and capacity for engaging with the senses.
