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.

Most of these photos were snapped in 2014, following ten years of comfortable occupation.
