A contemporary take on a traditional Victorian elevation.

stcolimg2
The idea to subtract a volume from the envelope of the building to create a centrally located courtyard evolved as a strategy to offer the house access to natural light and to provide the rooms with visual amenity.

A modern thinker in a traditional neighbourhood.

The final outcome is as much about the atmosphere and spaces within the house as it is about the connection of those spaces to its context and surroundings.
