Charred Kebony cladding by Shou Sugi Ban complements distinctive extension

kbd

Located on John Ruskin Street, in the vibrant London Borough of Southwark, architects David Stanley and Romy Grabosch have recently transformed their ground floor flat in South London into an outward looking garden-centric dream home by adding a striking timber-clad extension, fit for the modern day. Charred Kebony cladding by Shou Sugi Ban was chosen to provide a long-lasting and attractive timber finish for both the rear and side extension.

Throughout his career David has worked on a number of high profile projects across Montreal, Paris and London, including work on the European Parliament in Strasbourg and the London Borough Viaduct, which sits alongside the existing rail bridge running over Borough Market. Designing high-quality residential developments is David’s speciality and his personal project is nothing short of perfection, living up to his mantra that “life is too short for bad design decisions.” Romy is also an architect, working at Jestico+Whiles, and has worked on a number of high quality, award-winning projects.

The construction industry: forever plagued by leadership and policy changes – comment from MHA

mh

Brendan Sharkey, head of MHA MacIntyre Hudson’s Property & Construction sector comments on the result of the UK General Election:

In construction and real estate we can expect to see:

 

  • Sterling fall against the major currencies, facilitating UK assets such has London housing stocks and commercial property being cherry picked
  • Stagnation, if not a slight fall, in house prices across the UK
  • Local authorities trying to take more control over the delivery of affordable housing
  • Less volume in house sales, which will lower the Stamp Duty Land Tax take for the government
  • Build to Rent to continue apace, as the rental market has not gone away. The companies in this market may find less competition for quality sites.

Kebony cladding blends seamlessly into natural rock

Kebony

With the vision to ‘face the world’, the Homan family have created a perfect property for their family, located on the island of Hvasser. Owing to the island’s dramatic weather and the cabin’s exposed position by the sea a low maintenance wood which would withstand all weather conditions was required. As a result Kebony, a beautiful wood recommended by leading architects, was selected for the cabins façade.

Designed by architect Pernilla Johansson, the striking cabin was intended to stand out from the more traditional cabins in the area. However, the owners also believed it was essential to look to the future and build a cabin fit for the modern day, with the capacity to cater for the needs of their dynamic family. Throughout the summer, the family is able to embrace outdoor life from the roof terrace which offers a breath-taking view of the cabin’s natural surroundings. The terrace is constructed with closely set railings which work as an extension of the walls to create a sheltered lounge suitable for southern Norway’s famously unpredictable weather. When the weather does close in the sliding doors leading out to the terrace are pulled to, ensuring the family can enjoy the magnificent view, regardless of the weather.
