Architect home with Shou Sugi Ban extension
Situated on John Ruskin Street, in the vibrant neighbourhood of Southwark, London, architect David Stanley has recently transformed his family home by adding a striking extension fit for the modern day. Charred Kebony cladding by Shou Sugi Ban was chosen to provide a long-lasting and attractive wood for the exterior cladding and roof structure of the extension, which adjoins contemporary glass panelling.
Throughout his career David Stanley has worked on a number of high profile projects across Montreal, Paris and London, his work includes the European Parliament in Strasbourg and the London Borough Viaduct, which sits alongside the existing rail bridge running over Borough Market. Designing high-quality residential developments is David’s speciality and his personal project is nothing short of perfection, living up to his mantra that “life is too short for bad design decisions.”
