Sustainable House Design in Northumberland, England – Timber Lake House Gyllehaugh

Located in Northumberland, England, this modern architectural project is a study of sustainable living. Dubbed the Gyllehaugh Lake House, the home’s setting is a peaceful, pastoral one overlooking a lake, and the house is designed to preserve the very nature that surrounds it through ecologically responsible materials, building practices and a lifestyle to follow. Still in its approval stage, Gyllehaugh Lake House is an innovative, forward-thinking design by Reid Jubb Brown Architecture – a first in the region to adopt PPS7 (Planning Policy Statement 7), which is the UK-government directive outlining sustainable residential developments in rural areas. This modern model of eco-friendly design incorporates the latest and greatest in sustainable technologies. The structure consists of a timber shell constructed of green oak, formed using timber gridshell technology. The residence is composed of two volumes forming an L shape, connected via a footbridge. The wood walls provide insulation, finished with a thermal insulation coating. Also features in this amazing home are low-emission double-glazed windows, a greywater recycling system, and active and passive solar energy. Aesthetics did not go by the wayside, as this contemporary home dons a soft, natural guise that’s designed to harmonize with its lovely lakeside surroundings. The Gyllehaugh Lake House is the first of a handful of homes planned worldwide to feature this cutting-edge technology. Reid Jubb Brown Architecture
