Description by Clare Cousins Architects

Craving privacy from looming neighbouring flats two new structures were conceived to cocoon a private central courtyard space between them.

Designed for a young family the house caters for their needs now and in the future. A flexible space, referred to as the studio, is housed on top of the new garage forming a double story mass at the rear of the site to help screen large neighbouring buildings. The single story addition to the house engages with the garden with its meandering facade of glass and brick.
