11 pw

11 PW is a remodelling and extension of a family home for a structural engineer in Surrey.

The client’s brief whilst a typical one for a growing family i.e. the requirement for additional living space, to incorporate open plan living and to have a better connection to the garden area, also required us to investigate the innovative use of cross laminated timber (CLT) as a construction and finish material.

With the use of CLT we have been able to investigate a component based system for the erection of the new areas, including the additional areas at roof level.

A simple material palette of exposed timber internally and stucco externally have been investigated with the client in order to especially offer an element of individuality to the internal environment, something that they stipulated as a requirement of their brief.

The orientation of the additions has been carefully modelled along with the glazed slots and aperture locations to maximise the use of natural daylight into the new areas.

The project also includes the use of air source heat pumps to upgrade the house heating system.

 

Project is currently with the local planning authority for determination..
