Cheshire Street is an extension to a Victorian house with the usual problems of restricted access and need to maintain natural light to inner rooms. The addition replaces a rear sitting room, single storey kitchen, lean-to garden store and external courtyard with a flexible open plan space zoned to provide a kitchen, dining and day space, larder, shower room and storage. The asymmetry is shaped by the memory of the former kitchen and courtyard. Cor-Ten knits the new elements into the colour palette of older housing.
