0724 - Vaulted House



The existing building, a private four-bedroom house in central London was built on a highly restricted site bounded by garden walls. A series of innovative structural interventions have refurbished the existing site to create a light and modern family home.

Key features:

  • The ground floor level was reduced to create floor to ceiling height requiring the perimeter walls to be underpinned.
  • Removal of significant contamination on the site as part of the ground works
  • Lightweight super structure to support timber floors
  • Complex geometric roof structure to form sloping sections and large roof lights
  • Bespoke galvanised staircase fabricated with steel perforated treads
