This 1-bed annexe constructed over an historic wall and garages provides 40m² of accommodation. The design integrates structure, space and services to maximise efficiencies.

The space is a simple volume separated by a glazed partition which creates a dialogue with the outdoors. The property is accessed by a bespoke helical staircase constructed with oak treads and metal and glass balustrading.

The use of timber to form the light weight structure was important to avoid over-loading the listed wall and garages. Externally, reclaimed timber cladding lends a boathouse vernacular and this theme is continued internally with exposed timber beams.
