The brief was to completely remodel and upgrade this 1930th house, which was characterised by awkward side extensions set at 45 degrees to both sides of the original dwelling.
The design is considered as a series of interlocking forms that reflect the different uses of the internal spaces. The extension has open up the rear of the house and the angled facade directs the house south over the new patio, embracing the existing mature garden. Internally a new staircase re-orders the existing entrance and circulation space, providing continuity between the extension and original house. This in turn is reflected in the remodelled front elevation.
