Stadthaus, Murray Grove

Constructed entirely in timber, the nine-storey high-rise in Hackney is the pioneer of timber residential tower buildings in the world.  Comprising private and affordable housing, Murray Grove will provide twenty nine apartments.

The KLH cross laminated solid timber panels form a cellular structure of timber load bearing walls, including all stair and lift cores, with timber floor slabs.
