A derelict cottage is replaced by two robust but sympathetic new terrace houses.
Rendered brick walls are carefully articulated to produce proportions similar to the surrounding terrace houses without copying the detailing.
Screens provide privacy and continuity of the surface reducing the number of materials present while providing dappled light inside.
The standing seam roof is shaped to achieve interesting useable spaces in the attic and is cut off at the maximum allowable height.
The design possesses a presence that clearly defines the street and gives the proposal an enduring quality.
Internal living areas link seamlessly to small gardens for entertaining with plenty of storage.
