Slide Pocket House

Tikari Works Architects

A compact new build house with basement, ground and first storeys, we collaborated intensively on all aspects of the design leading to a successful synthesis of visible structural elements within the finished spaces. Contiguous piled wall was required for minimum impact to adjoining structures and for optimum use of space on the tight site.

internal fair faced masonry

lintels integral with floor joisting
