Small scale re-invention on very tight sites have extensive constraints, however this sometimes provides the creative backdrop for making some very special spaces. Here we have taken the rear façade of a traditional Victorian semi-detached house out and extruded a single storey contemporary box out along the boundary to enclose a new external courtyard. The new contemporary elements are clad in random vertical Siberian Larch strips varying in width to create a simple yet strikingly different look to the traditional elements of the existing house.
