Spruce House and Studio is a new-build home and self-contained garden studio constructed from cross-laminated timber (CLT) on an infill site in Walthamstow. The project is located in a conservation area, situated on what used to be the village high street. Referencing the historic origins of the site and neighbouring properties, we questioned ‘what is a contemporary residential shop’.
