Built right on Crossrail's doorstep is this unique community garden building. It is somewhat remarkable in this day and age that a community garden established on the last remaining undeveloped bombsite in the West End not only continues to exist, but has been granted an additional 30 year lease. Orsman Construction were proud to be selected to build this exciting and challenging project. The garden opened in Spring 2017 and continues to evolve.
In its use of high quality sustainable and easily maintained materials, the building showcases and reflects the ecology of the garden. A highly insulated SIPS construction is clad inside and out in a combination of simple fleton bricks, Portland stone panels and timber cladding. The roof of the building incorporates an extensive growing medium and will itself become an integral part of the garden.
A new build private house featuring ground source heat system, photovoltaic panels and exceptional levels of insulation. This reinforced concrete structure is clad in brick and insulated render. The finished house incorporates solar filtering blinds and a mechanical car lift.
Highly commended in the London LABC awards for best new individual home.

The property features traditional skylights, reclaimed flooring, exposed joists, feature brickwork, a bespoke kitchen made from reclaimed materials with concrete surfaces.
Extension and refurbishment of a ground floor flat
A moderately sized extension and a clever redesign by Archea Architects turned a one bedroom Victorian flat into a two bedroom space with linked kitchen and diner, internal courtyard and basement utility room.
This compact Islington property has been sensitively refurbished and updated to suit modern family life. Traditional materials and techniques were used throughout to comply with listed building requirements.
