RICHMOND WALK, PLYMOUTH HOUSE REMODELING
The proposal is for a high quality innovative dwelling, which would be an exemplar ‘carbon negative’ ecological home.
This end terrace cottage was completely gutted and transformed into a modern contemporary town house. Natural building technology (NBT) was used to insulate external walls both internally and externally.
A rear tenament extension has been added in the shape of a cat slope roof to create scale and proportion to rear elevation.
The ‘architectural language' of some of the altered elevations shows one of style, simplicity and space. All window opening heights and roof geometry have been balanced to give the facade unity and harmony. Additional glazing in the upper floor of the main entrance allows a greater penetration of natural daylight into the north facing spaces.
The concept of inverted living was used to capture the panoramic views out to the Royal William Yard and Tamar River estuary.
