WYNG Gardens is located within the historic conservation area of the vibrant city of Cambridge. Just off of the main high street, overlooking the River Cam, the new four storey building offers the University students of Cambridge a total of 72 new ensuite bedrooms with kitchen facilities and a common room area on every floor.
Partly funded by the WYNG Foundation, the development sits on roughly the same footprint as the former St Clement’s Gardens houses. The old terraced houses were in a poor state of repair, with subsidence issues and cracks both internally and externally and sub-standard amenities. This, combined with poorly conditioned services in constant need of repair - made restoration impracticable.
Set in the beautiful countryside of Northamptonshire in the heart of England, is an outstanding country home and deer farm. The striking new property consists of five ensuite bedrooms with a dining room, kitchen, games room and a swimming pool.
Curtain Place, a mixed used commercial and residential scheme located in Shoreditch, East London, is a ground-breaking project in terms of height and mass. This six-story build is divided into three floors of office space and three of residential units, providing an outstanding example of how cross laminated timber (CLT) is being used in a growing number of structures. The X-LAM Alliance was appointed by Gold Section Homes LLP, to fill a courtyard with new mixed use structure and as the project is located in an urban area, it was imperative to ensure that the CLT utilised the space effectively.
Ten storey Regal Homes residential development, Banyan Wharf - situated within the London borough of Hackney - has taken cross laminated timber (CLT) to new heights. Set to take the title of the tallest cross laminated timber residential building in Europe, Banyan Wharf is home to 50 one, two and three bedroom apartments – all sold off plan, prior to completion together with 1,190 square metres of commercial units. Timber technology was the preferred core structural component for the build, due to Hackney’s commitment to creating more sustainable buildings. A complex hybrid cross laminated timber and steel structure was vital in creating the most efficient and sustainable structural solution for the buildings unique ‘twisted’ design - the first of its kind.
