"Previously the site of a derelict dental surgery, the Lansdowne Gardens property follows the form of the original building – creating the illusion of a one-storey structure from street level."
The new house is accessed through the restored boundary wall. The entrance is marked with a simple canopy and timber door. Once inside the dwelling you enter a dedicated hallway with a dramatic 2 storey glazed elevation, which houses a new open staircase connecting the two floors. The main living space is located at ground floor level where a 5 metre wide glazed opening provides access to the new paved courtyard. The three bedrooms are located at basement level and are accessed via an oak lined hallway.
"The simple materials - brick, plus black aluminium for the glazing frames - are a reflection on the minimal form, but the ochre tones of the masonry give the architecture warmth"

"From the pavement the house appears to be a single-storey pavilion - its true nature as a two-storey structure is only revealed beyond the entrance, which is set into a restored boundary garden wall"
