North Carlton

This extension of an original horse stable at the rear of a Victorian cottage was largely dictated by heritage concerns. The context called for a clear delineation between old and new, which was achieved using complementary building forms and sustainable materials such as recycled brick and timber lining boards. Double glazing was installed while other materials, such as timber screening, were reused to minimise environmental impact
