Within this suburban end of terrace double-breasted period house the rear return is remodeled and a new external pavilion designed to provide contemporary garden focused living spaces.
The masonry mass of the back wall of the rear return of the original house acted as a barrier to the garden at both ground and first floor level, once removed a new granite terrace is laid addressing the garden, above which floats a folding and cranked roof plane, clad in zinc and anchored to the ground at key moments. The roof encloses the internal volumes and defines the intermediate courts between the old house and the new pavilion.
