The design for this inner city semi is to demolish the dilapidated rear portion of the house and rebuild with an open plan living dining kitchen area. The bathroom has been pushed back into the plan allowing the living spaces to interact with a new courtyard to the side and outdoor room to the rear.
The new design includes a split-level that steps down to connect the new rear floor level to the large north facing yard. A new master suite will be built into the attic by popping out the rear of the roof to gain additional space.
