The requirement was to renew relevance to the ageing house and to adapt to the changing needs of the family.
Spaces were combined, others divided, yet others expanded outwards or upwards into the roof space.
The extensive changes to the interior fabric are woven together by way of a continuous ribbon of cabinetry that passes in and out of every room, addressing functional requirements whilst reinforcing the legibility of the newly added against the backdrop of the pre-existing home.
