This project involved the design of alterations and addition to an existing Edwardian house of some historical significance. The idea of the house was organised around finding a compatible but distinctive relationship between the existing interior and the new addition. This was achieved through the use of a common materiality contrasting black brick for the new against red brick in the old. via
