This single fronted 'period' terrace involved an exercise in re-configuring, re-cycling & ultimately re-generation. Eschewing a desire to wipe clean the slate & start afresh the intervention here was instead one of assimilation & working with what was there. This included the 'givens' of a single fronted width, and the ability to ‘muck in’ with the workings of the existing structure, to re-cycle existing materials, and to utilise natural and /or re-salvaged local material wherever possible.

As opposed to a more thorough opening up of the interior the proposed layout instead involved a sequence of 4 disparate episodes which spill off the main entry corridor – each included a room that looked out onto a separate courtyard space. These spaces and the journey between them conceptually involve a series of contradictory yet symbiotic interconnections between light & dark, interior & exterior and old & new.
