A Timber Room: Unit 7, London Metropolitan University

This timber structure was originally built for last year’s Ecobuild exhibition at Earls Court, London

Constructed from Kerto-S composite timber elements donated by Finnforest, it was clad internally in 12mm plywood to create a materially rich sculptural interior. Artists Rut Blees Luxemburg and Hilary Koob-Sassen invited the students to rebuild the structure in Hadspen, Somerset. It was transported by lorry, reassembled and added to, creating a visually and thermally warm space inside an existing agricultural shed.
