This project comprised the refurbishment of an existing arts and crafts house including a careful external restoration and internal remodel, followed by the construction of a modern steel and glass single storey extension to the side and rear. The minimalist design and detail of the project combined with the innovative stressed skin steel roof construction – supported entirely on four internal columns – presented many challenges to be resolved in the construction. Externally, the envelope is a single uninterrupted skin of glass, and the extension features an extensive green roof covering.

 

The project received an RIBA award in 2009.
