The client likes to add a separate wing of personal space which includes the masterbedroom, ensuite and study. We understand the client grew up in a multi-level terrace where the separation of levels allowed a psychological privacy which is crucial for his well-being.

The project is to place this volume on top of the existing 1960s additions, which include views towards the front and rear property commanding visual connections across the site. Privacy of neighbours and shadow comes into the creation of the interesting pitch form of the building.

This together with the renovation of the existing victorian section of the house gave a double character to the house. The client is constantly reminded of the history and the spirit of the contemporary everytime he comes home.
