This Architect Pushed for Maximum Sustainability on His Own Home - An Architect’s Home ep11

The Design Emotive

With row houses though you're limited with your orientation, especially in areas with strict heritage control, and so Nick's home had an east-west aspect, far from the ideal of south-north for good passive design. Picking up cues from the olive trees, Nick went with a subdued green for the joinery, creating a calm interior space. He tested a lot of greens and ended up creating his own signature colour by adding a tiny amount of green to a grey base, giving a desaturated appearance.
