Progress on two retrofit domestic projects involving reused elements

Two projects are on site, which both explore reused and low embodied carbon materials in a different way.


The first in Whitechapel is a substantial reconfiguration of an existing end of terrace house, in which the side gable wall was deconstructed and reconstructed at an offset - not dissimilar to opening a drawer. The new elements of the now-wider house, are timber frame in construction and clad in a Russwood timber cladding.



The second, a small addition to a house in Eltham uses repurposed glulam beams along with salvaged cast iron structure to created a cantilevered roof structure over a new kitchen space.



Both projects well underway and taking shape...
