The project is a series of interventions on a 1960’s semi-detached house for a family in Folkestone. These minor amendments include reconfiguring parts of the plan to form a singular room for living and a supplementary hidden room to serve the utilities. Existing windows have been enlarged and simplified to provide the space with a greater presence of natural daylight. The ground floor gains a scale and unadorned dignity previously missing in the typology.
