SogoSolar were delighted to have the opportunity to be involved in a recent project designed and built by prestigious RIBA award-winning architects Tikari Works.
Tikari Works was established in 2014 by Nicola and Ty Tikari. The studio fuses the disciplines of architecture, construction and property development into a practice that acquires, designs and makes buildings and spaces.
The work is underpinned by a desire to find design solutions that combine pragmatism with a soulful, craft-based approach. With each project they engage with the art of making in a way that is rigorously analytical. They tackle the trinity of design, cost and value in a manner that is holistic, exciting and meaningful. This inclusive approach informs all their work and helps the practice to resolve the conflicting dynamics of making buildings in complex urban environments.
This development of 10 handcrafted apartments in Peckham Rye is the latest stunning example, with an emphasis on reducing embodied carbon and the use of wood throughout, giving a real Scandinavian feel to the living area.
SogoSolar advised on the placement of the Solar panels and an East and West orientation was favoured. This was to ensure the maximum amount of benefit could be enjoyed by the residents in the morning and evenings when power usage in the building is at its highest.
Nick O’Reilly of Tikari commented ‘we chose SogoSolar because of their expertise in this area and we were pleased by the smooth installation and handover of the project’
The installation features Perlight Solar panels and Enphase Micro-inverters. Enphase was chosen for the following reasons:
- offers the most advanced inverter technology on the market, which means higher production, greater reliability, and unmatched intelligence.
- higher production, best savings
- proven to produce more energy than other technologies.
- microinverters operate independently, so each panel performs to its fullest. One shaded or dirty panel won’t affect the rest of the system.
- Burst technology lets microinverters produce more at dawn, dusk, and in low-light conditions, for a longer solar day.
