Story

The client for this private house approached Bryden Wood at the end of 2002 with a design for a brick built house that had been granted planning permission. However, the design of the house led to tender prices that were £100,000 over budget. Bryden Wood were commissioned to carry out the difficult task of redesigning the house with the aim of maintaining the maximum habitable area whilst reducing the build cost to within their budget: Bryden Wood suggested utilising factory construction techniques, which would bring the project back within budget.

The house comprises six 2.8 × 4 × 10m units which were transported individually and lifted into place to create the family dwelling. The units have an Ayrshire metal-framed structure clad with brick slips and render in the factory. The kitchen and bathroom installation, internal lining and decoration was also carried out in the factory, together with electrics, heating and plumbing, and ‘plugged’ together on site to form a complete system for the house.
