This Victorian house had been sub-divided into seven sub-standard units and fire-damaged.
The brief was to restore it, upgrade its thermal performance and spatial quality and create a spacious single family dwelling.
New structural steel members allowed walls and partitions on the ground floor to be removed. This allowed the formation of an en filade sequence of reception spaces- formal living room at front; kitchen at the heart of the house, skylit dining and family spaces opening to the rear garden.
Strong contemporary forms and language differentiate new work from old.
