Award-winning South London prefab lists for £1.55m

The timber home is a stone’s throw from Bermondsey

At first glance, this curving timber-clad dwelling might look like a woodland idyll, but it’s located a stone’s throw from the hustle and bustle of South London’s Bermondsey Street.

Carmarthen Place is an award-winning London property designed by architects Emma Doherty, Amanda Menage and Kate Cheyne built in 2007. It extends across three storeys, and its innovative design maximises its plot, behind a row of listed buildings.


For sale via The Modern House for £1.55m, the house is one of a pair constructed on the site in just 12 days, using a prefab cassette system of sustainable Slovenian spruce and Siberian larch.

The 1,200 sq ft interior floorplan is designed for flexibility, ‘with living and sleeping spaces easily interchangeable,’ says the agent. Two bedrooms currently occupy the ground floor, while the kitchen and dining area are on the first floor.

Glass sliding doors open onto the south-facing terrace with its living wall, and lightwells draw natural light into the interior, which is further brightened by the blonde cassette walls and ceilings.
