We were approached for our second project on Mount View Road to strip back a 1940's post-war terrace infill to it's original rugged structure.

The alterations saw increased floor to ceiling heights by lowering the floor and removing dividing walls to create one combined social space. Exposed brick walls, concrete floor beams and an expressed steel structure have been combined to create a look which is true to the buildings time. Black crittall windows provide views to the raised garden set behind a pre-rusted corten steel retaining wall.
