The own­ers of this con­tem­po­rary home in London were keen to build on land they owned be­hind their Vic­to­rian prop­erty, and called on Facit Homes ( to make their dreams a re­al­ity. Of­fer­ing a one-stop-shop so­lu­tion, Facit han­dled ev­ery­thing from the de­sign, site sur­veys and 3D walk-throughs to plan­ning, build and in­ter­nal fit-out. The com­pany’s dig­i­tally man­u­fac­tured Facit Chas­sis™ forms the struc­ture of the build­ing, which boasts ther­mally ef­fi­cient tim­ber com­po­nents com­plete with in­te­grated plumb­ing, electrics and MVHR (me­chan­i­cal ven­ti­la­tion with heat re­cov­ery) duct­ing.

“Ev­ery win­dow, cable, duct and pipe is con­sid­ered in its de­sign, so the Facit Chas­sis™ is ready for them to be in­stalled. This speeds up con­struc­tion, re­moves the need to re-work any­thing on site and en­sures clean lines across the home,” ex­plains Rhys Den­bigh from the com­pany.

The re­sult is a two-storey home de­signed to their ex­act­ing spec­i­fi­ca­tions, and com­pleted in just seven months. The ex­te­rior is clad in Ther­mowood and cedar cladding coated in a dark stain to re­duce the vis­ual im­pact of the build­ing from the ad­ja­cent park. Large triple-glazed win­dows from Velfac and an EPDM roof mem­brane com­plete the picture.
