Welcome to Fab House
Fab House is a special edition of House; a unique and innovative design created by one of the most respected minds in modern housing, George Clarke. Using his years of knowledge and experience in architecture, George has helped us create a home that’s perfect for modern living.
Because it’s a House product, Fab House has all the benefits of a simple layout, high ceilings, full-height doors and plenty of natural light.
The name says it all, really.
Fab House by George Clarke and TDO
Simple. Honest. Spacious.
Great design and architecture isn’t just about the details of the house, it’s about how it changes people’s lives. The three words at the heart of Fab House are simple, honest and spacious. They were the key for George and his team when they set out to create a modern home for modern living.
Simple in its structure and layout. Everything is essential and intuitive to the lives of whoever’s living there.
Honest in its materials and finishes. Where possible we’ve introduced exposed joists and open beams to add detail and warmth, without adding visual clutter.
Spacious. Fab House has high ceilings and generous floor space, the large windows and plentiful natural light make the rooms feel even bigger.
Light & space
At the heart of the house is a lovingly crafted birch ply staircase, designed to add a little wow factor. A feature skylight funnels natural light down into the house, creating a sense of openness
Space to breathe
The kitchens and bathrooms are at the front of the property, close to opening windows to provide further natural lighting and ventilation.
Sense of space
Exposed beams further add to the sense of space, it's not just bigger in size, it feels bigger too.
Outside, our unique cladding provides elegant, natural shades without fading or discolouring. And as you would hope with such a beautiful home, each Fab House has it’s own private garden.
Not your average house
Fab House is not your average house. It’s 930 sq ft of meticulous planning, and additional space can be found in all directions, with ceilings a foot higher than standard homes.
You won’t just see the difference it makes, you’ll feel it too!
Designers Profile - George Clarke & TDO Architects
George and the team at TDO have used a lifetime of knowledge and understanding to create a house that feels perfectly natural. Everything’s planned to suit your life – it all feels intuitive.
The size of the rooms, the location of the plugs, the integrated appliances, the birch ply staircase, the position of the windows. There’s nothing fussy or weird or awkward.
Fab House Build
This idea of creating innovative, factory-built homes like Fab House has been in my head for over 15 years – the creation of off-site manufactured homes that are of the highest quality, that are simple, elegant and beautiful and embrace the very best of 21st Century manufacturing techniques.
“It’s been a real passion project for everyone involved. Designing really beautiful elegant homes that people love to live in. We’ve done it!” – George Clarke
Fab House is not just the chance to live in a beautiful, modern home, it’s an opportunity to be part of a new and passionate community.
The world outside your front door is equally important for life to thrive, and the historic shipyard of Smith’s Dock in North Tyneside provides the perfect environment.
A place where land, sea, air and people all work in harmony together.
Creating a community of people who appreciate the value of great design and want to be part of an exciting new chapter in the amazing story of Smith’s Dock.
What a place to live!
