Phase one' was conceived as a design and build project constructed by my wife and I over the course of 14 months.

This 1890’s Victorian terrace house needed to be renovated, extended and restored with specific consideration to our current needs. The priority of the project was to create a set of open-plan and functional entertaining spaces which would cater for both our work and social lives, whilst at the same time acting as an experimental test bed for design and making as part of my recently established architecture and design studio.
