SIPS Kent House Nearing Completion

SIPS Kent House Nearing Completion

The overall shell is complete and watertight, the roofs are on and are striking a lovely contrast between the tone and warmth of the natural clay plain tiles and the sharp lines of the zinc standing seam roofing. Located in a sensitive rural village setting, the scheme is conceived as a contemporary barn using what we call a ‘modern rural’ aesthetic; the overall shape and form is recognisable and sensitive to the historic surroundings but with a crisper, more refined and engineered approach to detailing, and some play (architectural fun) with the window positioning and proportions. We are really excited to see the scaffolding come down and the external cladding finished. This house was constructed using off-site manufactured SIPS panels, and is one of a number of projects where Thinking Buildings are utilising and advising the client as to the benefits of off-site modern methods of construction for key elements of the build to improve cost certainty, quality and speed of construction.
