Into a narrow gap site between residential and commercial uses an interwoven proposal was inserted with a retail unit at ground level and a two bedroom apartment above.
The main façade was stratified with a strong contrast between old and new emphasizing the break in the street between the original historic high street and the abutting modern residential street. Winter garden volumes were introduced either side of the glazed staircase in the rear façade to provide year round external space and to provide solar shading and privacy during the summer months.
