Shortlisted for Architects' Journal, Small Projects Award 2008
This Victorian house is a short-listed entry in this year’s Architects’ Journal Small Projects exhibition. Garden structures and ingenious ways to improve links between homes and their gardens are a theme among the domestic work in this year’s selection of entries. The unique feature of the design is the way the structure stretches into the garden, with its roof supported by slender columns. Full height glass doors concertina open and fold back out of the way to open the house directly to the outside; timber flooring inside and out helps to blur the boundaries.
