CLT House is a semi-detached location house in east London, with Vibrant yellow-rendered forms on its front and rear. 

Entry is (through a bespoke timber pivot door housed in an oversized yellow entrance, which leads to a skylit kitchen and dining area.

The kitchen and diner are housed in the bright yellow rear extension that opens onto the garden’s brick-paved patio. 

Between CLT House’s dining room and the existing living room, sliding glass doors open onto a small white-pebble courtyard, creating a circular route through the ground floor as well as providing ventilation.

Internally, the CLT structure has been left exposed and used to create storage and seating areas, while externally it has been insulated and finished in the banana yellow render with gently rounded edges.

Ine structural CLI grid is let exposed, creating the opportunity for long recessed bespoke aluminium lighting tracks which fill the extension with ambient light, designed to enhance the natural texture of the internal timber.

The yellow additions are tempered by gently rounded edges to bring a softness to their overall form, and stainless steel rain chains – a traditional Japanese guttering option – negate any visual clutter caused by downpipes. 

Contrasting CLT House’s pale timber walls, the kitchen is finished with black counters topped in stainless steel, including a movable island on castor wheels, and black metal window and door frames.

The garden contains a wooden studio, used for art and music.

Ground floor: living room, kitchen-diner, hallway. Bathroom.
