Cork House is a minimal residence located in London, United Kingdom, designed by Polysmiths. The project is a three-bedroom new construction home in Wanstead. The house is constructed utilizing sustainable materials, such as Cork blocks, Scottish Fir, and light-weight ash blockworks, on an underused brownfield site amid an island of terrace houses with the aim of creating a cocooning sanctuary from the East London monotony.
