The client wanted something distinctive and unique for their home, which responded to the aesthetic of the Conservation Area. The pitched form is inspired by the roof angles of the Edwardian terrace, and include a clerestory skylight which draws light from different times of the day deep into the home. The elevation is clad in traditional clay tiles which reflect the cladding of the host building in a modern and original way.
