A re-imagining of a standard spec-built 1980’s estate house. The internal layout has been re-worked and re-imagined as two primary spaces approached and separated by two timber-lined vestibules. The first of these replaces the previously constructed porch, marking the level-change from outside to in and housing a coat-press and meter cabinet. The second marks another level-change within the house – between the sitting room to the front and the kitchen dining area to the rear and houses a utility room and pantry. The timber-clad motif extends and adapts to form a floor-to-ceiling stair and landing balustrade spanning almost two storeys, concealing a small storage area, laundry-chute and under-stair WC.
