Hanover House

The refurbishment and roof extension of Hanover House, a Grade II Victorian warehouse, which was converted into a residential building.

Aiming to create a highly efficient structure, the roof has been designed as a self-supporting system to avoid additional loading onto the existing floors. KLH engineered timber was used as a sustainable high-performance material, creating a roof surface which folds up and down and bears on the external walls. The spatial concept has merged with the construction and structure and has formed one entity.
