Yikes. Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin have bought the house adjoining theirs and are in the process of remodeling to create a 33 room mansion in London.
According to the UK’s Daily Mail, their “plans show they intend to knock through the connecting walls to create eight rooms on the lower ground floor, six on the upper ground, five on the first floor and eight on the second floor. A two-storey extension at the side of the existing house includes a gym, changing room, three bedrooms and a bathroom.”
They also own several other properties around the world and I can’t imagine this new behemoth will help to lower their carbon footprint. There’s no news yet on any energy efficiency plans or green building practices but the Daily Mail’s photo does show a Prius parked in front of the construction site. Environment: 1, Paltrow & Martin: um, 33?
