Yew Tree Lodge, London

    Yew Tree Lodge in Hillingdon is a sheltered housing scheme for 12 special needs tenants in the grounds of a Grade II listed Arts and Crafts building design by Edward Prior.

    The structure utilises a very conventional, even prosaic, palette of materials (trussed rafter roof with terracotta tiles, load-bearing masonry walls, pre-cast concrete floors and reinforced concrete ground beams supported on CFA piles) carefully detailed to produce a building of quality, robustness and flexibility for future use.

    Due to high levels of CO2 found during the soil investigation, a gas membrane was provided under the ground floor finishes along with a suspended floor and appropriate venting.
