The brief was to provide the clients with a contemporary family house and garden. The house was to be flexible and sustainable, the construction was to be low budget, and it was to be built as quickly as possible.
Materials were chosen to match with the neighbouring white rendered building but in a contemporary manner. The scale was to compliment the Victorian Terrace. Due to the small footprint of the site we required thin walls so we chose to construct the house from structural insulated panels (SIPs). The SIPs panels are clad with a recycled glass Verotec board followed by a Sto render. No steel beams are used and the house is a 100% timber construction, the majority of which is recycled. The construction was erected by a team of local builders in three weeks with the help of a mini-crane.
