Caring Wood House

The Process

We worked together with the architects and their extensive door drawings to ensure the sizing of our ironmongery met the design requirements for their vision. We also designed and manufactured purpose made hand-railing brackets for the awkward shapes and turns of the hand-railing around and down the numerous staircases in the house. We also produced a bespoke stainless steel fixing pillar for the timber entrance door handles.

Caring Wood House

Caring Wood House is a significant 1600m2 new build single residence set in the heart of the Kent countryside inspired by traditional Kentish Oast houses. The project won RIBA House of the Year 2017 and the designers were commended for their beautiful manipulation of space and attention to detail and we were placed 2nd in the RIBA/GAI Awards for its Architectural Ironmongery Specification.

Code Level 6, PPS7 development

The Caring Wood House is ground-breaking in its use of materials and methods of construction. The development is built to Code Level 6, which renders this one of the most ambitious dwellings ever built in the UK. The aim was to get as close to carbon neutral as possible. It also falls under PPS7, the regulation that allows construction in rural areas/green belts for new houses of exceptional design quality and sustainability.
