A delightful, intimate cave is how the jury described this extension and consolidation of a pair of semi-detached cottages and their associated wash-houses. The grandness of the interior spatial qualities, which have a hint of arts and craft detail, belies the outward modesty of the house.

Only the exterior shell of the cottages has been retained while bricks from the demolished outhouses have been reused for an extension. The jury says the design demonstrates deep understanding of a house as a private and intimate space. Outstanding details includes the delicate sliding doors with matching wood veneer infills made from fallen trees on the site.
