Conversion, Extension and refurbishment of a small 1860s terrace house

The rear extension to this tiny Victorian terrace house has been rebuilt in a sympathetic but uncompromisingly contemporary style – using prefinished metal sheet with traditional brickwork to make a surprisingly bold architectural gesture.  The new bathroom and kitchen are elegantly fitted into very small spaces.

The existing fabric is completely lined with insulation and finished, decorated and furnished in a simple but elegant way.

Tiny garden laid out with ingenious triangular beds to give a useful patio for eating out with plants all round.

Many of the details made us smile.  The pleasure of creation is evident in the many ingenious and delightful details.  This is an extremely fine example of a modest Victorian house given a new life in the 21st C.
