"This secluded site within a Victorian block is accessed via a passage through a terraced house. The original development came about by spanning a delicate steel roof between buildings. Whilst the original structure was in a derelict state, we loved the bright and tranquil space. The brief turned to retaining these qualities in an insulated contemporary residential rebuild.Rather than carving up the main space we decided to keep this industrial’ and to juxtapose the scale with that of the bed rooms byturning these into an oversize sculpture, a composition of ply wood boxes set within the larger space. ”
