The clients for this Whitechapel project wanted to prioritise reused materials throughout. The new structure of the rear two story extension is made entirely out of recycled scaffolding boards, which extend from party wall to party wall, and create a rhythm of structure through the sitting and kitchen areas. Fixtures and fittings were procured from other sites including the kitchen counter which came from a School Science lab.
Height, Light and Social Connections
There is no substitute for natural light, be it light form the sun or light form the sky, and the more sky you see, the more light you get. One approach we enjoy is interconnecting floors to bring light deep into the plan, but also to open up the possibility of conversations and social interaction between floors.
