By reunifying 4 individual town-house apartments for a modern family home the opportunity was taken to maximise the existing building volume where new additions were limited by previous development.
Where the depth of the the floor plan had previously restricted natural light from pentrating the interior spaces this was overcome by combining them latererally and vertically to extend internal and external views and the rear was opened up with the bold use of glass. New skylights and internal windows dropped in and borrow light down and through the building while the existing staircase was adapted and a provide fluid and surprising circulation through the spaces. Materials, paticularly those in the basement, were chosen for their seamlessness and lightness, perfectly echoing the ambition of the architecture.
