The brief was to enlarge and upgrade this 1950’s family house without encroaching on the limited garden space. This was achieved by going up rather than out – by replacing the garage and rear extension with two storey additions and converting the attic. The living spaces flow into each other and are shaped in response to the angled garden. The glazed wall to these spaces can hinge, slide or pivot to provide various degrees of connection to the brick patios. European oak flooring and fitted furniture adds warmth and atmosphere. The thermal upgrade measures have improved the BER rating from an E1 to an A3.
