This 3-storey terrace was converted into a 4-storey terrace complete with 2 separate residences and full landscaping to the rear and front gardens. The renovation included:
- Transforming the existing three storey building to include the additional attic level with two kitchens and bathrooms with separate entrance to each dwelling
- Transforming the dark, damp terrace into a light filled open plan building
- Floor to ceiling glass to the rear of the terrace
- Custom designed sunroof that acts as a light box in the evening
Later the building was converted into a residence with separate offices. The full width of the rear terrace yard is exploited with complimentary seating, table and BBQ area. Well-chosen in-ground and potted plants frame the outdoor areas to bring together a mixture of timber platforms, catwalks, seating elements and concrete pavers.
