Four Roof-gardens and Forty Birch-trees ; The Muse in London.

Inspired by the German Passivhaus approach and technical methods developed by physicist Wolfgang Feist, Bere Architects’ own director Justin Bere started building his own home back in 2002.

“The Muse” is a Energy Efficient Solar-powered home located in Newington Green in North London. The home is topped with 4 roof-gardens,40 trees and two meadows.

If there is any rainwater excess, it can be stored in a 3000 litre underground tank before reaching WCs and gardens. In order to attract native wildlife in the middle of London, four lovely green roofs with varying soils were created and forty native birch trees were planted along the gravel entrance.

 

Within the gardens, there are two wild flower meadows that attracting all sorts of wildlife like bumble bees and house sparrows, which are sadly an endangered species. Birds and insects enjoy drinking and bathing at the ponds, cool bat and bird boxes were built within the brick walls and a hazel coppice and hawthorn thicket produces fast growing sustainable wood adding to the wildlife oasis in the heart of London./source
