slot house

Sandy Rendel Architects Ltd 

the house was constructed using a lightweight steel frame on a piled slab. The steelwork was prefabricated as a series of portal frames that were craned down the alley and site-welded together. Given that every inch in such a narrow space was valuable we chose to fully weld the connections and express the frame internally, even utilising the depth of the steels to maximise the space.

The original brick master´s house was a typical portico country style with a pitched roof. Portico attached to the longitudinal main volume was a distinctive and practical feature on the interface of the exterior and interior of the house. Apart from the natural protection of this frequented zone, it regulates different effects of summer and winter sunshine energy on the mass of the masonry.
