Addition of a new floor to a mid 19th century brick dwelling-house with two apartments (type: terrace house).
Investigating plastic composites as building material, the planned addition will be prefabricated in two parts using lightweight PET sandwich panels. The use of plastics in building reduces their release into the environment.
A new glass roof over the central stair draws daylight into the original part of the dwelling, and connects inhabitants with the moving English sky.
The project is being developed in collaboration with M.u.H. von der Linden GmbH in Wesel, Germany.
Materials workshop with client at M.u.H. von der Linden GmbH.
