Corten Terrace

Not just a rusty metal box stuck on the side, this modest Corten clad addition to a Victorian end-of-terrace house transforms the spaces that flow through it. The main function of this small Corten clad volume, built over a dingy courtyard, is to allow light to flood into the adjoining spaces, and reconnect the house with its garden. Largely hidden by the existing garden wall large windows peek over the wall and onto the pavement beyond, bringing sunlight in and framing views of the sky and trees outside. New windows to the main house, constructed with Corten reveals, bring light into the traditional Victorian drawing room, and hint at the new interventions.
