This project called for the internal re-modification of an end of terrace two-storey over garden level mid Victorian house, to form a modest family home with an associated independent ground floor flat. A generous living and dining area is provided on the upper ground floor level that opens to a raised west-facing terrace outside, this in turn connects with the garden below via a timber staircase. Above, on the first floor, two bedrooms, a bathroom and associated storage are accommodated in the plan. The stairwell is roof lit. A teak floor is laid as a continuous surface throughout the house folding over the island unit and forming the backsplash to the adjacent counter top.
