Unknown Works has renovated and extended CLT House in London, United Kingdom.

CLT House is a renovation and extension project transforming a modest mid-century terrace into a bold and sustainable new home.

The design – for a young family – makes extensive use of pre-fabricated cross-laminated timber (CLT) construction, wrapping the interiors in warm, naturally finished timber.

At the same time, its exterior is painted a bright yellow, which marks a departure from the context’s norm – clearly distinguishing between old and new.

This project has been longlisted in the house extension category of Dezeen Awards 2023.
