Butterfly House

Sustainable alterations & additions to the rear of an existing Edwardian dwelling.

The voluminous curved elements of the new extension capture sunlight & illuminate previously gloomy spaces. Low cost yet resilient materials have been assembled utilising standard construction techniques to enable the project to be fulfilled within a limited budget.

New rear living areas offer comfort & delight to the family and frame 3 x unique views of the garden beyond. Rather than living in a large box, the family rooms offer several open plan spaces which flexibly enable either togetherness or solitude.

These photos were recently snapped, following eleven years of comfortable occupation.
