This impressive semi-detached sandstone house suffered from a series of utilitarian side alterations detrimental to the original architecture. These were removed to accommodate a new open plan kitchen / study space at ground level with master suite bathroom / dressing area and terrace at first floor.
Large pockets of the existing gable end of the house were removed to allow a seamless connection with the original cellular plan. A glass ‘slice’ wraps itself around the new wall / roof connections to the existing gable, allowing for the flow of natural daylight into the new plan which could not benefit from side windows due to it’s proximity to the boundary.
“Absolutely delighted with the design, we now use the house in a completely different way.”
