We are thrilled that Push-Pull House in Amersham has won the Custom & Self-Build category of the Structural Timber Awards.
Push-Pull House is a playfully creative, light-filled new-build family home, built of Cross Laminated Timber (CLT), exposed throughout the interior.
The use of CLT helped to minimise the construction programme as the whole frame was erected in only three weeks. This meant that water-tightness was achieved quickly, allowing internal trades to progress early on, accelerating the overall programme.
Visual grade CLT panels provided instant finished surfaces that reduced the amount of finishing materials required, therefore cutting out a lot of waste.
Overlapping voids and double-height walls form a sequence of volumes so the living spaces flow together, making for a fun and sociable home.
