The Strange House, London

This house in Deptford is a wonderful example of how much can be achieved on a very small and restricted site (75 square metres) and on a modest budget. The house superstructure is an engineered timber frame by Eurban. The frame was lifted into place within a week, and was sufficiently lightweight that a concrete raft could be poured on top of the existing slab on site saving the time and cost of site excavation.
The doors, windows, linings, and much of the furniture is made from FSC-certified tropical hardwood fabricated in a Nicaraguan factory from trees felled by Hurricane Katrina, all of which arrived on site in a single container.

Completed 2009.
