Live-Work Multigenerational House

Location: Bromley, Kent

Year: 2016
Size: 263m
Client: Private/Commercial

1. Brief
Replace the existing office building with a Live-Work unit, having residential accommodation above the office and to the rear.

2. Challenges
The angles of the shape of the site required extra consideration. There was considerable neighbourhood objection to the contemporary design. Limited site access to build next to the road.

3. Goals
To create a sustainable development. Balance the quality of the office space and living space on the Ground Floor. Maximise the accommodation over the whole site.

4. Unique Solution
Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) construction was use, where the building was modelled in 3D and the timber cut by computer to achieve the exact angles required. The mansard roof creates maximum second floor space and achieved Planning approval. The finished building is gaining neighbourhood approval.

Mechanical Ventilation and Heat Recovery (MVHR), Cross Laminated Timber (CLT), high levels of insulation, solid concrete slab for thermal mass, timber cladding and south facing glazing.
