London Local Group – Visit to Mayville Centre, Islington

A community centre refurbished and redesigned by award winning Bere Architects to Passivhaus standards.  The project was featured at the recent UK Passivhaus conference.

The London Local Group enjoyed a visit to the Mayville Centre Dan who is the Project Architect from Bere Architects, gave the group a detailed tour and answered plenty of very detailed questions, all of which was very much appreciated by AECB members. The Mayville Centre is the UK’s first non-domestic passivhaus-certified energy saving retrofit is very relevant to solving the problems of under-performing solid-wall housing blocks, offices and schools in the UK.

The photographs show AECB members inside the boiler room and the Mayville Centre.
