KSKa architects are proud to announce that ‘Origami House’ has won a prestigious 2020 Ealing Civic Society Award, a 2021 Structural Timber Award and most recently been shortlisted for the prestigious London NLA ‘Don’t Move Improve’ Awards showcasing the contemporary best that London has to offer. Discussions are also on-going for the project to feature in a property TV programme.
This unique one bedroom, open-plan family annexe is formed of an extraordinary cross laminated timber (CLT) folded plate Origami structure. The panels were put into place in 5 days.The site backs onto a church and is located within a sensitive West London Conservation area, in the rear garden of a listed house. The sculptural Origami geometry was inspired by the retained irregular foundation footprint of a previous garden studio, which the new build replaces. The precision of CLT allowed for a fast build and the adoption of Passivhaus sustainability measures such as super insulation, triple glazing and MVHC.
