This small, 1980s terraced house was converted to provide contemporary, open-plan living in a city environment. The ground floor was opened up entirely (using sprinkler systems to alleviate fire risk). The house and garden are connected via new, large glass doors to the rear. The first floor bathroom was integrated with the loft staircase, to maximise bedroom space. The loft was converted with an ensuite WC and open-plan bath, providing views over the city.
