Aynhoe Park Plot 2
A unique project comprising of the construction of 3 luxurious contemporary new build private houses in the grade II listed parkland of Aynhoe.
Aynhoe Park 2 is set over two levels with long ‘wings’ in Y shaped configuration to maximise the views of the parkland.
SD Structures were appointed to carry out the structural design and underground drainage. The structure comprises a steel frame with concrete floors to achieve the large open plan internal spaces and overhanging first floor geometry. SD developed a solution to enable a 10m wide glazed opening to be column free on the ground floor whilst working within the constraints of a 300mm deep structural floor zone. To achieve this the lower storey is constructed in steel and concrete with the supper storey being constructed using modern methods of construction in which lightweight prefabricated wall and roof panels are constructed offsite and craned in. This helped achieve the architectural vision and was also cost efficient and fast to construction onsite.
