This extension to a Georgian house allowed the original layouts to be restored by decanting bath, shower and utility rooms into a separate structure to the rear of the house, accessed via enlarged openings through the chimney breasts.
The simple carpentered timber structure is clad in ship-lap boards. Translucent perspex strips were incorporated into the cladding to let in natural light during the day and to act as a multi-storey garden lantern at night.
