135_herringbone timber clad floating office
This project presented a rare opportunity where the client owned two end terrace properties and the gap in-between. As well as renovating and extending each property, they also asked Darwent Architecture to come up with a few ideas of how the gap could be developed and incorporated into the scheme. We therefore created a home office / guest bedroom suite as a pod in the sky caught between the two terraces. Set back and clad in a herringbone untreated larch cladding, the extension does not try to compete with the original brick buildings or appear to close off the terrace which the planners were keen to avoid.
