Build It - - RENOVATION & BUILDING -

Neil Dusheiko Ar­chi­tects are be­hind the de­sign for this wrapped tim­ber box-style ex­ten­sion. Siberian larch cladding was af­fixed to dou­ble bat­tens on panel vent boards within an oak lat­tice, cre­at­ing a clear de­lin­eation be­tween new and orig­i­nal struc­tures. The de­ci­sion to use wood, as op­posed to brick or struc­tural glass, was rooted in the home­owner’s de­sire for the de­vel­op­ment to re­flect its sur­round­ings, close to Ep­ping For­est. A new tim­ber stair­case links the ex­ist­ing house to the new space.
