As a multi-award winning design, House 19 by Jestico and Whiles is an artistic piece of architecture located in Old Amersham in London,UK. Featuring “Dark cedar gables”, the house is carbon neutral and energy-efficient. Mainly blending environmentally conscious materials with a 21st century look and feel, they achieve a cross generation piece of brilliance. The property is most proud of its sustainability and raw touch, pulling off a robust but beautiful end product. The company detail the exact materials and how they are applied by saying:
“In terms of materials the house is firmly rooted in the history of the area through the use of delicately dark stained vertical board cedar cladding, snapped-and-knapped luminescent flint (used for cladding and to create external walls), dark zinc roofing and accents of carefully placed corten steel to accentuate certain elements of the elevation. The detailing of the house reflects these material choices.”
