Model making: It was great to catch up with @sebastiancoxltd at his studio this week.
Sebastian is making a model of Grain House for the forthcoming @nlalondon @dont.move.improve exhibition of the winning projects. Seeing as we won the ‘Materiality and Craftsmanship’ award it seemed only fitting to team up again with Sebastian who worked on the kitchen and some of the cabinetry at Grain House.
The model is designed to articulate the idea behind the project: a series of timber sculptural elements that respond to landscape and context.
The model is made from Ash and the roofs CNC cut to re-create the rhythm of the slats which will then be lightly brushed with a blowtorch to give the roof a graphic edge like the project itself.
Looking forward to seeing it complete and in the exhibition that opens at the end of the month in Coaldrops Yard.
