The proposal entails the re-design of an existing semi-detached corner terrace with the addition of a metal-clad singular volume to the rear. A connecting, indented form between new and old fabric locates an expanded bathroom at the centre of the plan.
The rear form responds to the established pattern of roof profiles within the surrounding locality of terraces. It respects and augments the original front form by remaining sub-ordinate in bulk and scale, while inventively reinterpreting this form and neighbouring established roof patterns - for considered access to a reorganised side courtyard, sunlight, natural ventilation and views of neighbouring landscapes and sky beyond.
It composes corrugated metal roof and wall cladding, black painted
mild-steel plate details, corrugated metal fences and a corrugated metal clad
carport over a concrete deck that reiterates the material language and formal
qualities of the rear addition. A internal concrete slab, flush exterior
concrete deck, finely detailed joinery, inlaid hardwood timber and courtyard
bench, and black aluminium framed glazing complete the material palette.
