Thoth London

While we are lucky to have a first in class in-house team, we also know that there are times when a project requires a certain set of external specialist skills or perhaps the geographical location or scale of a development means we need to call on extra support. This is when we engage with partners who are experts in their given fields who can help us uphold our high standards of service and deliver our clients’ vision.

Wood Houses

Wood is certainly one of the most versatile and common building materials. However, we have to remember that although wood can be called a sustainable material, the over-harvesting and deforestation can exceed the ability of the forests to regenerate themselves. Therefore, when we want to invest in a wood house, we should think of materials such as log or timber, that can be made with certified sustainably harvested trees or with the use of sustainable building methods.

Green Roof Homes

Green roofs are known as an amazing architectural feature but this method has more benefits to it than just visual aspects. Green roofs can aid in managing stormwater runoff and helps to reduce the urban heat-island effect. This roof construction solution reflects heat rather than absorbing it like a regular roof, and helps with lowering a building’s cooling costs. They are also great insulators while requiring very little maintenance.


Prefabricated homes or “prefabs” are homes built ahead of time and off site. They’re manufactured in parts (panels or modules) that are shipped and assembled on site. The construction techniques vary greatly, depending on whether you go with panel built or modular, but both of these prefab types are different from manufactured homes (factory-built and shipped as a whole). These days, many prefab houses sport a sleek, modernist design, but there are often custom architecture options.

LED Lighting

Electricity drastically transformed the night-time look and feeling of interiors, replacing the soft flicker and glow of candlelight, of gas and oil lamps, with the hard, bright, on-demand illumination of incandescent bulbs. Lighting is undergoing a radical change once again thanks to advances in LED technology. LED bulbs are vastly more energy efficient than the filament bulbs of the 20th century, which means the carbon footprint of a home can be greatly reduced without switching off the lights. Even producing LED-powered luminous textiles or soft cells that can add an atmospheric glow to any interior without the need for a single fixture. And, of course, smart lighting which harnesses software using smart phones, their virtual thumbwheels can instantly change the intensity, temperature, colour, and even the very moods of light—restoring the soft, romantic flicker and glow of ancient lamps and candles.

Sustainable Technology

Today’s eco-friendly houses aren’t just sustainable, they’re smart. Thoth London partners design and engineers the Internet of Things (IoT). Smart-home systems control light, heat, sound, and even irrigation at the touch of a button. Ideal for homeowners who split their time between several residences, each home-automation system can be programmed remotely so that energy is not wasted when the property is vacant. Smart technology can also help protect the home. There are many apps with remote, one-touch security notifications, such as surveillance cameras alerts, presence detectors, and live-stream audio-visual transmission.

Timber Frame

A timber-framed home is an excellent celebration of wood on a massive scale. Timber framing construction is a building method that utilizes heavy timber rather than dimension lumber.

Hemp Concrete

Due to the fact that traditional concrete is very energy intensive to create, hemp concrete was developed in order to work as an alternative. Hemp concrete is a mixture of hemp, water, and limestone that is, surprisingly, more durable than regular concrete. Walls made with this material are said to be resistant to fire, mould and insects. Hemp concrete may, however, can be 10% more expensive than regular concrete but there are new innovative suppliers available in the UK with a new commercially viable option.

Passive House

A Passive House is a home built using rigorous standards for energy efficiency. Passive home building aims to achieve quantifiable energy efficiency as well as comfort, through various design principles such as extreme airtightness, continuous insulation, and high-performance windows and doors. While reducing environmental impact, residents of a Passive House will enjoy excellent indoor air quality and temperature, as well. The Passive House Institute asserts that designing a Passive House is your best bet for becoming Net Zero or Net Positive (meaning your home generates as much or more energy than it needs).

LEED Certification

LEED certification has become a byword for eco-friendly construction practices. LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a green building certification program from across the pond, that recognises a project’s efficiency standards. It is the most widely used green building rating system. According to the council, more than 430,000 homes around the world are LEED-certified. Green single-family homes represent approximately 40 percent of the market, and 84 percent of all residential construction will have sustainable features.

Geothermal Heating and Cooling

Like solar panels, geothermal heating and cooling harnesses the forces of nature to provide optimal indoor conditions at any time of year. This technology allows homeowners to make the most luxurious home’s environmental footprint relatively small, even as its design makes a big aesthetic impact. An efficient geothermal system can provide 20 years of reliable heating and cooling, with minimal maintenance, so the benefits of installing one may outweigh the costs, especially if it’s for a new-build or to replace an old system.

Stone Houses

Stone houses are built with rocks! Stone houses have their natural beauty and don’t require additional painting. They can be built with the use of local materials and are very comfortable. With the use of a passive house design, stone homes can store heat within its walls.

Modular Homes

Modular homes are no longer prefabricated houses some might be familiar with. Nowadays, modular houses are built with a modern look and an environmental twist. With the options of more eco-friendly homes these are typically smaller than traditional houses, therefore they use much less energy to heat and cool.

Sustainable and Locally Sourced Materials

This eco-friendly practice is not at all new: before international shipping became commonplace, “locally sourced” was simply the method all builders used to construct houses as they chose from stone, wood, thatch, or local clay, depending on which resources were abundant in a particular region. To reduce the carbon footprint of today’s construction practices, architects and contractors are seeking local solutions to new design challenges.

Solar PV

Using the inexhaustible energy of the sun, solar rooftop panels can provide a lightweight, long-term cost-effective way to boost the “passive” energy of a home. Solar panels are on-trend and can be an attractive and artistic addition, whether the home is brand new or centuries old. Our platinum partners produce beautiful roof tiles that allow builders to create energy-efficient, solar-powered homes that draw design inspiration from a classic architectural style. Solar power is among the most exciting innovations in green design.

Greywater Harvesting

There is a range of modular tanks, filters, pumps, control equipment and water treatment units designed for installation above and below ground as an integrated automated system. These systems are ideally suited to new build and retrofit domestic and commercial projects and offer simple, reliable and affordable solutions, particularly when it comes to Greywater which is gently used water from your bathroom sinks, showers, baths and washing machines. It is not water that has come into contact with faeces from the toilets.
