LSO Terrace

We obtained planning consent for a highly contemporary, sculptural terrace addition to a converted oast house, in the Green Belt near Sevenoaks.

The circular terrace is the same diameter as the two adjacent oasts and is formed of three corten steel 'tree' structures, from which the circular deck is suspended via hundreds of thin stainless steel cables.

A staircase has been incorporated which is constructed from curved galvanised steel grating. More construction pictures to follow.
