Kew House (Work in Progress)

Approached to undertake a refit of Kew House due to a series of complications in the internal lining of the building. The project required a surgical approach to the new fabrication, due to an existing steel shell, which became an exercise in zero tolerance design and the deployment of 3D scanning to develop and verify on site conditions and installation.

The project's new interior frame becomes a component kit of parts, roughly 600 individual pieces, that is assembled by a team of builders through an interactive digital model on site. Initial verification for the almost completed frame put the a rough accuracy at 4mm over the 25m span, which starts to gauge a level of accuracy within the project.

 

The continuation of this work  forms the basis of a research project that is currently being developed in collaboration with Tim Lucas.
