18 Beech Gardens, London, W5
Brief and project type
Refurbishment project to a private family dwelling. Project consisted of converting the existing attic with rear dormer addition, removing internal load bearing walls and extending the property at the ground floor.
Concrete, masonry, steel, timber
The scheme involved converting the old Victorian property and adding additional space. Structures Made Easy Ltd. was approached by client architect to design both sub and super structure of the proposed building.
Due to type of soft soil and proximity of drainage pipes, piling foundations were used. Ground floor benefited of open plan layout and extension. Steel beams under main load bearing walls of the house were used. A goal post frame was inserted.
The attic was converted by using traditional steel and timber to construct the floor and the shell of the dormer, roof and outrigger.
