The Muswell House Design with Very Small Carbon Footprint by Adrian James 1

A distinctive curved roof house has been spotted in Piddington, Oxfordshire, and architect Adrian James is behind this. Awarded a commendation at the Clay Roof Tile Council’s 2008 Clay Roofing Awards, The Muswell House was able to make use of its roof to maximize the internal space. A stunning architectural example, Adrian has supplemented a contemporary looking wall of glass to the direct illuminated open living room. Featuring a ground source heat pump and a heat recovery ventilation system , the Muswell house is a stylish eco statement with a very small carbon footprint.

Two major new four-storey office buildings, which have achieved a minimum BREEAM rating of ‘Very Good’, (the UK sustainability standard) have also opened at the site. The buildings will accommodate flexible engineering accommodation – one will house F-35 staff while the other will house customer support for BAE’s Saudi Contracts.
