TIMBER IN ARCHITECTURE

Jana Rock, who studied at Central Saint Martins and then worked at Bain + Bevington Architects, solved her accommodation problems by designing this appealing box in plywood, which allowed her to sleep in privacy within the living room of her flat in Old Street, London.

There is room in the box for a bed, a wardrobe and a foldable bed, and a translucent sliding door admits light.Why did she choose plywood?

'It was the cheapest material I could find in England, ' she said.Now, though, Rock is moving flats and plans to disassemble the box, with a photographer documenting it for her.She sees it as 'a transformation project'- another indication of the versatility of timber.
