Amin Taha Architects built this gabled apartment complex in the north of London, the UK. The 6 apartments feature traditional brick facade and distinctive projecting wicker balconies.

To build this 6 story apartment, the architects used a cross-laminated timber (CLT) structure, where layers of laminated wood are used as a skeleton instead of concrete and steel. This structure was surrounded with a facade of perforated brickwork, matching the brick facade of the 2 neighboring buildings. Punctuating the street facing side are large bronze framed windows. Wicker covered balconies provide a seating area for the homes, as well as a cover for the seating area below, spaced in a way that allows light.

Because the interior structure is timber instead of concrete or steel, there was no need for plasterboarded walls and suspended ceilings. The CLT structure is exposed in the interior, with parts of the brick facade visible as well. Without tiling or paint, the interior takes on a warmer tone. “Timber also has inherently more robust and is perhaps a better and warmer domestic aesthetic,” the architects noted.
