It has been announced that Lendlease has introduced a new property to its portfolio. The most sustainable residential developer in the UK has launched new innovative eco-concept. Futurehome is a project that is said to be a large step forward in the growth of the residential developer’s residential business. The new property also emphasizes the company’s focus and commitment to the area of sustainable urban development.
Futurehome is a new concept that delivers an advanced and low energy design for homes that are expected to stand the test of time. Futurehome is a collection that will launch later this year. The collection forms part of Lendlease’s flagship zone one, a regeneration project in Elephant & Castle, Elephant Park. Within this project there are 15 properties which have a Victorian townhouse style, while also being within zone one of London and having the Passivhaus efficiency reading, the world leading energy efficiency rating. This energy standard was developed in Germany and is the most highly regarded accreditation in the world. Elephant park’s Futurehome is the first to receive the Passivhaus accreditation in zone one of London.
The ability to integrate the standards required for Passivhaus in to time-honored design is an attempt to combine building methods that increase sustainability while remaining suitable for the urban living all within one single design. Futurehome does this because it is the product of over 60 years’ experience in sustainable development and also displays the next step towards providing leading sustainable regeneration projects for Lendlease. Being able to include advanced Passivhaus standards to their classic designs is a bonus for the sustainable redeveloper.
The Elephant Park development is the only project in the C40 Cities Climate Positive Program. This makes the project one of the most sustainable projects with in the urban regeneration sector in the country.
