The project involves the demolition of an existing load-bearing masonry two storey house and build of a new, steel framed, modern private house. The new building is to be supported on a new piled raft slab above external ground level, to provide minimal disruption to the underlying, protected tree routes. Large clear spans and a cantilevered first floor and balcony area necessitates a steel frame. It is proposed to provide metal deck concrete slabs within this for acoustic reasons.
