An unaltered and blinkered 1920’s semi-detached house with no relationship to its site is reworked to accommodate the needs of a young family to enjoy sunlight, embrace its small garden and carefully curate and frame its outlook to achieve a space that extends beyond its confined urban site.
The public fifth floor rests upon the private fourth floor, and the third floor’s public front versus the private rear. The public functions are delineated by the interplay of planes : the walls and floors, while the private functions are defined by volumes encased by intersecting solid walls.
The rear facade engages the opposite approach, it is all glass, a full-height, full-width curtain wall that bathes the interior in light. At night, the warm lantern-like light of the interior illuminates the rear garden.
