Full steam ahead for Foreign Bear Studio’s site at Fassett Square. We are also delighted to welcome a new member to the design team Marjorie Mohler. The sun came out today so the first coat of fibreglass was applied to the flat roof of the new extension. The images give a glimpse of the amount of glazing used within the project to help create a really bright interior. The flat roof kerbs and the up-stands for the large roof glazing has been created by our carpenter and the glazing is all in situ on site and will be installed next week. We will update you once the glazing is in as it will mean both a watertight site and that the project can roar ahead with the interior detailing.
We also ripped out the horrible plasterboard ceiling to expose the beautiful and incredibly dusty original Victorian suspended timber floor of the flat above us. Alas we cannot keep it in it’s full glory as we will need to put sound insulation between the beams and the floor of the flat above. But it was really great to see the bones of the original Victorian craftsmanship and especially the simplicity of the Herringbone strutting.
