This beautifully composed new-build house is on a small street opposite a typical Victorian terrace. It makes a significant and appropriate urban contribution by providing a clear edge to a line of back gardens.

Inside, magical proportions and an ingenious use of space provides a set of zen-like domestic interiors and courtyards, fitting for a small family. It is largely inward-looking, providing privacy and tranquillity. Interior and exterior merge seamlessly, extending the space of the living-rooms out into the gardens.
