Thread House

Thread House is a refurbishment and extension to an existing Victorian terraced property in Putney, London.

The works including the removal of a number of stability and load bearing walls and lower ground floor, which combined with the new side and rear extension, provided a fantastic open plan space, improving site and communication lines within the building along with significantly increased living accommodation.

New steel portal frames were designed and installed to support the retained load-bearing walls and new timber roof above while providing the appropriate level of stiffness as part of the stability strategy.

To the side of the property, a pitched roof structure will be constructed, spanning between the flank wall and a new timber stud wall adjacent to the party wall. This is formed of a cranked timber section with a threaded steel rod in a bow-strung formation to prevent moment connection requirements in the timber jointing.
