Care was taken to preserve valuable architectural details where possible. The side extension was constructed from reclaimed imperial Red Rubber bricks to match the existing house and original glazed tiling uncovered and restored. Sections of ceiling were removed in the first-floor bedrooms to create bright double height spaces lined with tongue and groove timber.
A second phase of work involved a redesign of the children’s double height bedroom. A compact design proposal introduced a new platform hung from the roof to create bed space with joinery and desk space beneath.
