From here the project became about creating a child-friendly house that had character and a story to tell. The house has already been dubbed ‘The Ark’ by the locals. Internally, entertainment (passive) is separated from dining/kitchen/entertaining (active) by joinery that encloses the staircase and houses the kitchen, a laundry, all the TV/Stereos/Data-storage etc. and a W.C. We were luck to have a great team of collaborators/builders to assist in delivering a project that is excellent value-for-money and loved by the locals. Despite having the advantage of a pocket-park to one boundary, this project presented an opportunity to revisit the terraced house typology. The kitchen has now become the central focus of a less formal contemporary house – with a cultural ‘need’ to link internal and external living spaces. For more information please check on Mac sites.
