Londons Green House Crowned UKs Best New Home

Architectural Triumph in Tottenham

The quest for the 2023 House of The Year has reached its pinnacle with Hayhurst and Co's Green House in London seizing the prestigious title. Amid the hustle and bustle of Tottenham, this urban sanctuary stands out as the epitome of modern living and sustainable design.

From Dilapidated to Distinguished

The Green House rose from the ashes of a rundown structure, transformed into a contemporary and energy-efficient abode by the innovative minds at Hayhurst and Co. The home's striking facade, crafted from sliding polycarbonate, bathes the interior in natural light, creating an atmosphere that is both spacious and inviting.

Sustainability at Its Heart

Constructed with eco-friendly cross-laminated timber and powered by rooftop solar panels, the Green House significantly reduces its reliance on traditional energy sources. An efficient pump system heats the home, underlining the commitment of the client and architect to sustainability.

A Lush Urban Oasis

RIBA Jury Chair, Dido Milne, lauds the Green House as the 'Tottenham Riad,' a nod to its clever design that incorporates a central courtyard akin to those found in Moroccan architecture. The home's abundant greenery, atrium for natural ventilation, and a charming rooftop terrace offer a serene escape within the city limits.

Flexible Living for the Future

The Green House is not just a static structure; it's designed with the future in mind. Spacious rooms equipped with curtains for optional separation provide the adaptability needed to cater to the evolving needs of a growing family, ensuring that this House of The Year will remain functional and beloved for years to come.
