And Mr Lee add: ‘We enjoy that the building’s technology and ecology are an intrinsic part of the architecture, not hidden or disguised, but celebrated and enjoyed.’
One of the properties on London’s Fulham Road is currently on the market for £1.75m
However, Michael Zucker, of estate agents Jeremy Leaf & Co, was less than complimentary about this house.
He says: ‘Is making a big thing about eco credentials, fitting solar panels on a building and calling it sustainable an excuse for poor design with basement bedrooms looking out onto a tiny well area, a toilet directly off the kitchen area and completely inadequate living or amenity space for a four-bedroom house?
‘Also, does it never occur to someone asking over £1.75million for a property to consider removing some of the clutter or trying to make the interior look attractive?’
The properties were designed by hcl Architects to ‘fit snugly into a tight, awkward site previously occupied by six disused garages’, according to the estate agent
The average price of a property on the Fulham Road is £1,078,507, which is a drop of £36,982, on a year ago, according to property website Zoopla.
The fall comes during the pandemic when many homebuyers are seeking more space in rural and coastal locations.
It compares to the typical value of a home in Britain today of £329,210, which is less than a third of the Fulham Road average.
Daniel Copley, of Zoopla, said: ‘The exterior of this property is certainly a talking point with its many solar panels and futuristic feel.
‘Aside from its unique facade, the property has an ultra-modern and sleek interior, with generous living spaces and private outdoor space.
‘It also enjoys a brilliant location, which is just a short stroll from leafy Bishop’s Park and the bustling Fulham Road with its many boutiques and restaurants.’
