Push-Pull House is a playfully creative CLT home for a busy and extended family, that was committed to reducing waste through building a sustainable timber home on the site.  In an ‘established residential area of special character’, this two-storey MMC house, with its ‘split’ play on the pitched roof, nonetheless responds to the local Arts & Crafts aesthetic in its ‘pushed-in-pulled-out’ volumes, use of roof spaces, articulated structure and crafted details. The bespoke result, tailored to the family, gives a spacious, day-lit, cosy home connected to the mature garden and surrounded by the warmth of its exposed timber structure.
