Carl and Mary Turner’s Slip House as featured on Channel 4’s Grand Designs 2012 constitutes a new prototype for adaptable terraced housing.

Three simple “slipped” orthogonal box forms break up the building and give it its striking sculptural quality.

The slip house is a low carbon dwelling with an eye-catching exterior of glazed panelling.

It is designed to the Code for Sustainable Homes Level 5.

Integral to its concept design is the thermal mass provided by our flat soffit “demidec” flooring and staircases.

As well as being fundamental to the general minimalist expression within the building fabric, the soffit and joint quality was considered good enough to be left exposed.
