Two flats were built by an architect in the form of a four storey house to provide a home for himself on the upper levels and a rental apartment on the lower floors. The new building, completed in 1985, stands at the end of a brick Georgian terrace, the proportions of which it echoed.
Project Orange first became involved in phase one of the project, converting the two apartments into one house in 2001. We returned to work on phase two of the project involving the reconfiguration of the second floor to create a master suite, the construction of a new roof pavilion and the creation of a new guest suite on the lower ground floor.
The result is a collage of eccentric materials and elements. Each phase of the works both enhance the existing architectural language of the building and also acknowledge themselves as a new "campaign" in their own right.
