A sloped rear garden allowed for the introduction of a series of overlapping terraces combine with a strategic cast-insitu concrete structural frame to form new internal and external spaces through the layering of secondary timber structural elements, glazing and brick facades with this primary system. The new layout is configured to maximise natural light in both the north facing addition and reconfigured living areas while also opening up the rear of the existing dwelling on ground floor level.
