|:||The existing building is an Edwardian semi-detached house located on a triangular plot along the river Quaggy. The unusual plot shape allowed space for development on the side while leaving three distinct garden spaces around the house, to the front, side and rear. The idea was to build a two-storey side timber extension which opens up a better connections to these garden spaces while creating an architectural contrast to the existing building. Given the proximity to the riverside there are large mature trees all along the boundary, creating a green curtain around the gardens and giving access to longer views in between onto the borrowed landscape beyond.|
