The existing terrace had little natural light, constricted stairs and circulation, and room layouts which related to an earlier era. So much of a 4 storey terrace house is about vertical circulation and our aim was to make this journey as joy full as it could be without feeling like a maze. The project celebrates this circulation with an ornamental stair, opening up the centre of the terrace to light, changing internal vistas and views to art. The ground floor was completely re-planned for modern family living, which spilled onto the courtyard framed by a mirrored garden wall.
