Growing up, I went through a serious Anglophile phase where I was pretty much an enthusiastic sponge for anything and everything British. My transatlantic love affair has tapered off in recent years, but after watching the below video I’m head over heels in love all over again.
, a super cool sustainable style-oriented website that I check in on every so often, recently took a video walk-through
of architect and affable bloke Luke Tozer
’s extremely svelte — it’s only 8-feet wide up front but opens up in the back — West London pad.
It’s called the Gap House
and it’s one of the more gorgeous green homes I’ve laid eyes on recently. Furnished with modern furniture plucked from antique markets, passive solar design, geothermal underfloor heating
, rainwater harvesting, and more, casa de Tozer
is one stylish, sustainable stunner.
All of the nifty eco-features (and one setback for "culinary reasons") in Tozer’s home are well explained in the video. However, one question remains. When can I move in?
