floor extension and attic conversion with associated zinc clad dormer to the property. This will create living space in the kitchen area and add a fourth bedroom with improved home office space.
Planning for the scheme has been achieved late 2021 and we’re looking forward to this going on site later in the year.
WIKIHOUSE BUILD for naked build co.
We started 2022 with the opportunity to test build our new Wikihouse Magpie prototype with Naked Build in the Lake District! The Architecture Unknown Team made it to site and learned more about how to design, engage and build with Wikihouse. It was great fun and a good learning experience Magpie, as explained in our previous winter Ezine is our new version of the WikiHouse that is designed for community-self build projects. Our passion is to help people understand the benefits of using Wihikouse. Design and construction is the start to creating an inclusive dialogue.
Yet another milestone for this great construction system that we want to share with you. The WikiHouse Skylark launch on the 10th of February at the Building Centre in London was a wonderful way to connect with like-minded people and have a glimpse at the new WikiHouse system, Skylark.
