Shortlisted for the 2012 Stephen Lawrence Prize, Hill House (formerly Shoreham Nursery) by Hampson William Architects commands excellent panoramas over a six acre site. A large portion of the lower ground floor, set into the fall of the land, called for the installation of a quarter-sawn white oak plank finish. Softwood battens were installed between our Ideal EPS heating panels to provide a means of fixing the engineered planks. Tighter pipe centres were employed adjacent to the expansive glazing to help offset the heat losses. Bedrooms at first floor level received one of the very first installations of 20mm thick Fermacell 2E11 boards to enable installation of a carpet finish.
