|:||The existing cramped spaces of this Victorian House have been opened up both internally - via the creation of new openings and the judicious placement of full-height mirrors - and externally by the construction of a new full height glazed façade to the garden. Inside the elements are composed to create a play of materiality and illusion. Internal structural components are clad in rough pebble dash, which mimics in-situ concrete and makes reference to the DIY wall treatments of neighbouring houses. These rectangular objects are complemented by a series of elements of similar geometry created in paint on the walls and in ceramic tile on the floor. Perceptual ambiguity is created throughout the whole space by mirrors which are situated to create the illusion of spaces beyond the confines of the walls.|
