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.
