Design

Working closely with Metropolitan Housing Trust and our contractor client, we developed the scheme in order to provide generous internal units, compliant with Lifetime Homes and London Housing Design Guide standards. Our client requested timber frame construction, which required a detailed technical approach and collaboration with both the timber frame manufacturers and Structural Engineers.

Build

This scheme is constructed primarily of prefabricated timber frame, the Block A ground floor plan however, was built using traditional masonry construction to support the first floor concrete transfer slab which spans the parking undercroft and vehicular entrance into the site. The building facade displays facing brick from ground to parapet level, with powder coated aluminium rain-screen cladding to the top floors.
