A transformation of a typical two-up, two down terrace into a modern, urban living space with a number of spaces within a small footprint and a passive environmental design.
A three bedroomed, terraced property renovation, a terrace transformed. These properties are normally characterised by their low ceiling heights, dark centre and isolation from the rear garden. In this project the living spaces merge into one through the use of materials, heights and thicknesses.
A large open plan space accommodates many functions separated by furniture and walls. A sunken living space facing west enjoys the evening sun and captures solar gain to heat the house. A mix of modern and traditional materials creates a gravitas and delicacy to the internal spaces including in-situ concrete, stripped brickwork and glass and oak stairs.
The home is conceived as an extension of the city, a place to rest between journeys.
