Murray Grove Housing
Constructed entirely in timber, the nine-storey Stadthaus is the tallest timber residential building in the world. Comprising private units for housebuilder Telford Homes and affordable housing for social housing provider Metropolitan Housing Trust, Stadthaus provides twenty-nine apartments.
The building has been assembled using a cross-laminated timber panel system and is akin to jumbo plywood, arriving on site in panels up to 13m in length. This is the first building in the world of this height to construct not only load-bearing walls and floor slabs but also stair and lift cores entirely from timber.

Waugh Thistleton Architects – Practice Information
Architect studio based in Shoreditch, East London, England, UK
This Shoreditch Architects firm was established in 1997, is an architecture practice based in Shoreditch. They strive to make beautiful, intellectually rigorous, environmentally responsible architecture; responsive to client, context and brief.
Projects range from high-rise housing, through to mixed-use, public, and commercial buildings.
Clients include Housing Associations, Local Authorities, Artists, Synagogues and Cinemas.
Andrew Waugh and Anthony Thistleton met at university in 1991. They shared a sense of humour and many of the same views fundamentally, but not exclusively, on architecture. Conveniently complementary in their skill sets, the pair set up practice together in 1997. Eighteen years on, this British architecture practice has established an international reputation for their beautiful buildings. The Shoreditch design practice has a long-standing aim to prove that intellectually rigorous architecture does not need to come at the expense of accessibility.
