69 Bishops Road, Cambridge

A highly sustainable new family home in Cambridge.

The timber framed structure is wrapped in a traditional brick plinth on the ground floor, with a recessed entrance, a bay window and deep window reveals , while the light first floor forms a simple vertically clad timber mass which expresses the internal structure and responds to the new developments around the city fringes, 

The ground floor windows were recessed to  express the heavy brick base with deep bespoke brick on end lintels, whereas the first floor windows were installed almost flush with the thin timber cladding surrounded by slender metal flashing over the frames edge.
