2014 Woodland Grove
A three-storey self build house designed with Practice Architecture for gap site in Greenwich, London.

Timber is the predominant building material here, used for the eight timber box frames installed along the length of the building. The frames are designed as moment frames and detailed with a radial bolt arrangement at the joints. Timber sheathed floors and bracing members tie the frames together.

Dividing and external walls are infilled with hempcrete, a composite material often made from hemp, lime and sand used in construction due to its strong insulating properties and low embodied carbon.
