London’s first Passivehaus has a heavily insulated shell made from prefabricated European larch timber. The term Passivehaus refers to an advanced low-energy construction standard that ensures homes are cool in the summer, warm during the winter, and well ventilated with perfect air humidity levels. As a result, the energy-efficient home maintains a high level of indoor air quality while consuming much less energy than other south-facing terraced houses in the area.
