A previously run down and dilapidated mid terrace three storey townhouse has been completely refurbished throughout to create a modern light filled family home. Working to a tight budget and an even tighter time scale the project benefits from a number of practical and cost effective solutions. By exposing the existing roof we were able to transform the upper living spaces at the top of the property but also the central circulation space, increasing volume and natural daylight. Further space has been added through a rear roof addition which features a rear facing roof terrace.
