NEWTOWN TERRACE contemporary-patio


The brief was to transform this small heritage single storey 2 bedroom + 1 bathroom semi-detached terrace into a modern 2 bedroom + guestroom/study + 2 bathroom family home.

In todays property market we find many clients seeking terrace roof conversions & first floor additions to increase floor area and maximise the site potential rather than moving to a larger property. This is usually an efficient and cost effective approach.
Throughout this project we were able to improve the overall perception of space which is so valuable on small & narrow sites. By carfully considering the stair design & location we managed to retain the essense of the existing entry corridor whilst improving the entry experience by raking the ceiling up to the new first floor level and creating an open stair to increase the perceived width of the entry.

The building is located within a heritage conservation area and the design demonstrates a smart & sensitive approach to development of heritage sites.
