Slate House, Bournemouth
- Kingspan TEK structural shell above a reinforced concrete basement
- Direct appointment by client
- Slate tiled roof and walls
- A high performance, energy efficient home
Working in the constrained site which was formerly garages, the client created a reinforced concrete basement, housing bedrooms and ‘underground gardens’. Above ground a Kinsgpan TEK SIP structure provided the perfect solution, being lightweight and swift to erect, despite the irregular angles of the building to fit the site
A combination of steel and glulam beams created architectural features as well as the structure for generous open-plan living spaces, whilst the SIP walls and roof ensured a well-insulated and airtight modern home.
