A 1950’s local authority house has been extended, renovated and reconfigured to align with the geometries and constraints of the site. A brick finished extension forms a knuckle turning the corner between the adjacent public and local carriageways. This newly formed wedge houses the relocated stairs and service areas, which allow the original small rooms to connect and form an unexpectedly generous family hub. Existing cills are dropped to floor level to form thresholds to the front and rear of the property and the main entrance is relocated to address the approach. Fenestration within the finger jointed brick faceted façade and the newly formed attic space has been positioned to take advantage of the favourable aspect and views over the surrounding rooftops.
