This interesting Victorian semi-detached house is a collage of disparate elements, materials and shapes, all unified by a simple timber beam painted white. We repeated this method of composition - collage unified by a simple beam - to the rear of the house with a material palette of stock and reclaimed brick suitable for the backlands. Internally a dramatic barrel vault connects the old to the new while drawing in the light through classic yet modern pierces. Photography by Aisling McCoy.
