CASE STUDY 23


WITH THE HOUSING CRISIS GROWING, MANY IN THE INDUSTRY BELIEVE IT IS NO LONGER VIABLE TO REST ON OUR LAURELS, AND PROGRESS MUST BE MADE TO SPEED UP BUILDS


that makes people happy and yet still allows the building industry to make a significant profit.”


“By utilising the latest technology and materials,” he continues, “we have built a home which puts space, light and design at the forefront.” He concludes: “The nHouse could help provide more homes by significantly speed- ing up the building process and providing cost-effective homes that people genuinely want to live in.”


The firm behind the project, nHouse Commercial, claims that the house includes more windows, higher ceilings and more space than any other newly built home in its price range. It’s also eco-friendly with low running costs. Its forward-looking styling, plus “lifestyle-embedded” technol- ogy and generous proportions, will make it an attractive prospect for many buyers.


FEATURES


The finished product is a roomy, contempo- rary two storey, three bedroom home with high ceilings. It incorporates lots of natural light and extra embedded technology, unusual in other standard builds. It includes a master bedroom, en-suite bathroom, a spacious balcony (including a mini-bar), a double bedroom, a single bedroom and a family bathroom (including a touch sensi- tive screen mirror which allows Fitbit connection). The nHouse also has a large open plan living space and modern designer kitchen, with a utility room. The 100 m2


more than the UK average of 80 m2


floor space offers 20 per cent for new


build homes. Each home features high ceilings, a large balcony and open plan living areas to suit modern lifestyles. An nHouse can fit on a plot with dimensions of 10 m x 18 m.


The house includes solar PVs linked to underfloor heating, inbuilt rainwater harvesting and greywater recycling, under- floor heating, internal heat pumps, and even a delivery drone landing pad which facilitates what will, it is believed, be an everyday feature of future living.


By only offering one off-site product, nHouse intends to provide a “greater focus on quality and cost reductions,” to ensure value for money. The firm says a house will be ready to occupy five months after order. “The single design avoids costs and hassle for developers who are often faced when having to commission new expensive archi- tectural designs for each planning permission application.”


nHouse will be able to mass-produce the house – which comes in four separate completed parts. This means the kitchens, bathrooms and even the plasterwork is pre- completed. Even the light bulbs are screwed in before the house makes its way to the site. Not included in the price is a separate carport which for £25,000 offers “future-proofed luxury,” including a recharge point for electric vehicles. Constructed using structural cross- laminated timber panels, what’s claimed to be a unique design includes “superior construction details” that minimise acoustic and impact sound. In addition to its various eco-friendly solutions the house will also have less wastage of materials during its construction.


Repeated technical specialism and quality control processes means a ‘snag free’ final product, says the firm, backed up by a a 10 year warranty and 80 year guaran- tee on core building materials.


FLEXIBILITY To offer flexibility to developers, as well as housing associations and local authorities who want to supply good quality mass housing, the nHouse can be set up as a detached house, semi-detached or as a terraced property.


nHouse Commercial which has designed the project was launched by Studio RHE, a firm of architects, developers and project managers based in central London. The firm has been building award winning, innovative homes for over 20 years. The first nHouse is currently in develop- ment and will be available to visit and explore in July 2017.
