Words from the designer

Brief

An extension to a single storey, two bedroom, Victorian terrace house.

The client required that the small site (166 sq m) be used to maximum potential to increase the size of the house and also the garden space. We identified the client's passion for her garden and the sun, as an exciting opportunity to increase the local ecological diversity and absorb carbon dioxide. The brief also encompassed the aims of minimizing resource and energy use.
