About the project
Here I was asked to reinvent and extend a 70’s house located in The Park area of Nottingham.
The concept is to remove the horizontal emphasis of the windows and the typical materials used in the 70’s period. I achieved this by reorganising the window locations and by over cladding the building with modern, low maintenance materials that creates a less symmetrical appearance with strong vertical elements. The interior is also opened up to create open plan living areas that flow into each other and, importantly, connect the house to its South facing landscaped gardens via a rear single storey extension that opens up onto the garden.
