THE BUTTERFLY HOUSE – A MID TERRACE EXTENSION IN CAMBRIDGE
“The aim of the project was to retain the existing qualities of the original Victorian feel of the house, and contrast and blend this with the new contemporary elements without losing the charm of the existing. We did this with the use of external brown zinc cladding and reclaimed brickwork to the rear, and exposed brick and timber finishes internally. We also retained some areas of the existing painted brickwork finishes to the rear extension at the transition from new to old.
The resulting design has given the clients a bright and light home with elements of new and old combining to provide them with a house that they can continue to grow into as a family.”
