Aptly named Douglas Fir House, The project reconfigures and extends a studio flat in a converted Edwardian house set within a conservation area in Muswell Hill, north London.
Douglas Fir was the choice of timber imported from the west coast of North America. The Douglas Fir was used for the structural timber frame, the doors and windows as well as the cladding. Natural wood fibre insulation enveloped the whole building to create a near passive house living environment.
