Modern Intervention

D2 Architects were engaged by a private client to refurbish a Victorian three storey dwelling in the heart of Chester. The brief required the transformation of the rear living spaces into a modern open plan family area, whilst retaining the external and internal character of the building. The introduction of a small infill single storey extension provided a new kitchen and informal living space, whilst allowing a free flow into a raised outside terrace, maximising the use of the sun to the rear garden. The Victorian features retained through the front of the building allow a path of history to be read as you walk the building and out towards the modern intervention.
