Philippe Starck is helping to lead the way in eco-luxury housing with P.A.T.H, a new concept developed with RIKO. Ecological housing, luxury style and innovation come together under the Prefabricated Accessible Technological Homes collaboration located at The Lakes by yoo. Resulting in incredible architectural homes which produce more energy than the houses will consume, Philippe Starck is once again at the very forefront of the modern design industry.
The first time the innovative collaboration has been available in the UK, the eco-luxury housing first became available earlier this year in March. Located in the stunning and tranquil woodland of the Lakes by yoo, P.A.T.H effortlessly combines both Philippe Starck’s signature timeless design and RIKO’s high expertise.
“Subversive, ethical, ecological, political, fun: this is how I see my duty as a creator.” Philippe Starck.
Respect for the environment is married into this unique turnkey living solution. High technology, comfort and timeless design come together to provide a new solution for homes of the future. Each individual property will be designed to integrate seamlessly high eco-technology systems; solar, thermal and wind turbines, combining to create more energy than they use. With a breath-taking glass façade, cornice roof and timber terrace P.A.T.H paves the way in eco-friendly luxury living. From the curved aluminium roof providing shade for residents and masking solar panels and rainwater collection systems, through to Venetian blinds that have been expertly integrated between panes of triple glazing, every detail gas been expertly taken care of. Meanwhile, a quiet, elegant wind turbine can generate up to 60% of the house’s power.
Owners can create their own desirable retreat, as every P.A.T.H house is designed to meet all individual requirements. Available within 3 or 4 family sized bedrooms, there are three base structural styles and a vast selection of interior packages to choose from. P.A.T.H is perfectly at home whether it rests in a woodland glade or in a waterfront garden, its elegant lines, light inviting spaces and green credentials make it truly exceptional. Each of the different models of houses from the P.A.T.H range is distinguished by Philippe Starck’s signature timeless design.
Variables include house size, numbers of rooms, floors and multiple open floor plans that can fit every lifestyle and need. Owners can choose between different facades, a range of roofing types, as well as variety of interior finishes and fixtures, such as light fittings, floor finishes, bathroom tiles, and many other possibilities to fully personalize their P.A.T.H. There is also a wide palette of complementary eco-technological solutions such as photovoltaic solar panels, wind turbines, rainwater collectors or heat pumps. All P.A.T.H model houses are rapidly built and come with a full long-term assistance to the owner.
P.A.T.H works closely with The Lakes by yoo Team, experts in luxury interior design and high-end property development.
