Kingstown Street House

A narrow garden site is developed with a two storey steel framed house. The first floor is a spacious column free volume floating over a solid masonry base. The superstructure is fully welded for rigidity. A dynamics analysis indicated that the main floor would be prone to steel vibration so roof and wall infill panels were given additional stiffness to provide adequate levels of damping.
