The client asked us to look at revisiting every aspect of the existing building to propose the most efficient use of space whilst creating a strong sense of place within each of the floors of the building. The brief has given us the opportunity to look at relocating the stair core to become a feature piece of furniture that runs up through the centre of the building, freeing up space within the plan to provide generous yet dynamic living spaces.
A glass window wraps up from the ground and over the rear extension, bridging across into the outrigger, stretching between the old and the new. Perforated metal cladding will create a subtle sheen to the building and creates a rhythm across the back of the building.
