The beautiful Georgian Villa had served as retirement home for many years; a number of hideous extensions had taken away much of its charm. I was able to prevent its demolition by removing all the annexes and placing a new house at its side instead.
In order not to distract from the Villa this new building has been given a clear-cut, self-contained form, the shape of the roof and the fabric of its skin strongly relate to the existing building. The Villa and the new house contain five apartments each, a transparent staircase connects both buildings, its roof was designed to “disappear” if viewed from Belyars Lane.
