Plays on volume & proportion require the body to traverse a series of delayed
thresholds creating 2 or 3 mains points of discovery as height and volume are
compressed and expanded within this single fronted victorian terrace. These spatial rhythms
are similarly overlayed & integrated with the change in language from period
facade through to the new intervention at the rear.
The small site required every last mm to be utilised, hence all the internal walls
of the previous partially detached rear are pushed to the site boundaries effectively
fortifying the internal and external living areas & maximising the sites potential
A series of architectural objects are dropped onto the virtually clean slate
of the rear open space. This series of specifically positioned yet seemingly random
geometric forms dangle precariously over the drop in floor level (accommodating
the fall of the site) and house different functional zones that delineate spaces
within the main volume.
