Barefoot Architects for private client
Contract value: £248,000
GIA: 82m2
Cost per m2: £3,013

Clad in weathering steel on a triangular end of terrace plot, this courtyard house was designed for a client whose daughter lives next door. The brief was to develop a new two-bedroom home that could be inhabited on the ground floor only by the client for the purposes of accessibility, with an intimate central courtyard and a separate first floor space for guests. There is also a roof terrace that overlooks an adjacent park. The lightweight, well insulated air-tight timber frame was inserted within the retained historic brick wall forming the courtyard. The new structure sits atop  a flood resilient raised floor slab.
