Housing - Whitmore Road





Previous Arrow Next Arrow





New build construction of a six storey, mixed use development on the south bank of the Regents Canal in Hackney. The extremely tight site, bounded on two sides by existing buildings and the third by the canal, formerly housed a warehouse and now provides offices for the Shoreditch Trust, a double height photographer's studio and three duplex penthouse flats with roof terraces.
 
The semi-basement and ground floor were constructed in waterproof reinforced concrete due to the canal-side location. Upper floors were built off of this podium using a cross laminated timber structure which was insulated and clad in sweet chestnut rainscreen.
 
The cross laminated timber structure was completed in 5 weeks. This speed of construction reduces overall programme length which in turn reduces ‘prelims’ costs. An all-dry approach to external enveloping and internal finishes was adopted, further accelerating on-site construction by eliminating wet trades.
