Special achievement, which was awarded the UK Wood Award 2007 for best Offsite construction. The project consists of two 2-bedroom houses, placed in Londons old city centre with a strong historical impact. With its skilfully designed pure elements, the wood construction blends in with the row of brick buildings as an equal despite the contrast in material. The interior, in its turn, is dominated by solid wood and purity.
