Shortlisted in Don't Move, Improve! 2021

This compact extension for a young family marries their cultural backgrounds, inspired by the warm material palette of Indian architecture and the elemental construction of British modernism. The design creates a triptych of interconnected spaces: an atmospheric studio steps down into a light-filled kitchen dining area, which opens onto an intimate garden ‘room’. The construction is expressed through exposed steel and oak beams supported on sandstone loadbearing blockwork. To enable an open stair, a miniature ‘escape’ door was created between bedrooms, creating a a moment of childlike wonder.
