NRAP Architects for private client
Contract value: undisclosed 
GIA: 235m2

This project is the overhaul and extension of a 1970s house. The client approached NRAP with the aim of doubling the habitable area. The shape of the site determined the form of a two-storey extension, with the rectilinear geometry intersected by an angled boundary to create moments of interest; a triangular chimney terminates the composition and provides a focus to a new living room upstairs. The new kitchen/diner connects to the garden, while the original living room has been converted to a master suite.
