Green Architecture from Apex: Green Homes in Bristol open their doors
Houses in Bristol incorporating energy saving features opened their doors to the public on the 13th -14th September as part of the Bristol Green Doors Event. Homes were opened to allow people to visit real homes which had been made cheaper to heat, more comfortable, kinder to the environment and energy smart. It provided an opportunity to talk to householders and let them see energy saving in action. At Apex Architecture we are proud that one of our Bristol buildings was featured and to be able to share our passion and understanding of designing a green building. Our client Martin Eagles opened up his soon to be completed live/work unit, in Southville and ran some impressive and educational guided tours.
As Architect on the project I was happy to be on hand to answer questions and I met some really interesting people. There was a great turn out on both days, with up to 60 people asking some thought-provoking and searching questions. One of the main subjects raised was the unique ventilation system, which I will be writing about soon. I look forward to Green Doors next year.
